Saleswoman paralyzed for life after working out in the gym

A Filipina has been lying in a coma in a hospital for the past six months after suffering from a paralytic stroke while working out in a gym.

Abu Dhabi, U.A.E. - A 42-year old Filipina saleswoman based in Abu Dhabi named Elvira Cadiz Malveda was rushed to Shaikh Kalifa Medical City. She was then transferred to Al Rhaba Hospital. She collapsed in the bathroom after a few minutes of working out in a gym.

Citing medical reports, the Gulf News report said Malveda may have suffered a brain hemorrhage, with doctors declaring her a quadriplegic. She has been in the said condition for 6 months now.

It is not immediately known if Malveda had a precondition but studies have shown that people associated with high blood pressure are exposed to risks of an aneurysm rupture.

Presently, Malveda cannot move and has to be fed via a tube. She responds to her environment only by blinking her eyes.

Marilyn Pascual, Malveda's sister said that she used to be very active and healthy. It breaks her heart to see her sister in a very bad condition.

The hospital is pushing for a discharge by next week but Pascual herself has to take care of a sick husband and a special needs child. She said her husband is on life support and suffers from pulmonary fibrosis.

"Most of what I earn is spent on the treatment of my husband and daughter but I cannot abandon my sister who is single and has nobody to depend on," Pascual further added.

She works in Abu Dhabi as a nurse. She is worried about the long-term cost of the treatment. She asks for help from other family members. She has to find a rehabilitation center in Abu Dhabi or in Philippines.

Be careful exercising. Make sure to consult a doctor before hitting the gym for some precautionary measures.
