Common Questions and Answers about Stroke symptoms young people

stroke

Avatar f tn It sounds like you have suffered a stroke, that was likely caused in part by your diabetes. However, you are still young to have a stroke, despite diabetes, and it is important to exclude a predisposition to clotting, what is termed a "hypercoagulable state" in young people with stroke, even if they have other risk factors for stroke (such as diabetes). This is important because the treatment to prevent further stroke may differ. This can be tested mainly with blood tests.
Avatar f tn By any chance was your stroke a carotid artery dissection? This one is the most common one for people ages 30-60 which is also considered young for a stroke. And what generally causes it is trauma from a car accident, chiropractic treatment, sneezing, coughing, or just spontaneously for no reason. That's the kind of stroke that I had, totally out of the blue with no risk factors.
Avatar n tn I used to work in Neurosonology, and we had young people at times coming in who had strokes as young as 23 yrs old. It blew my mind and I wanted to know why. A Neurosonologist told me that when you reach the cocaine high your blood pressure is extremely elevated like 200 or more, that is what gives you the high, and can cause a stroke or heart attack in some people of all ages. I think what you experienced was caused by the cocaine and heroin.
Avatar f tn Just wondered if there are any "young" stroke survivors out there. My very healthy athletic husband had an unexplained massive right side stroke Sept 2014 at age 47, (yah, no spring chicken I know, but still...) He got the TPA in time, however he had a bleed anyway causing more damage and an emergency craniotomy for the swelling. He is lucky to have survived but the stroke has taken it's toll on him, but he is fighting hard to make a comeback.

Avatar n tn Agree to test cholesteral based on history of stroke symptoms
469720 tn?1388146349 Age - The chance of having a stroke more than doubles for each decade of life after age 55. While stroke is common among the elderly, a lot of people under 65 also have strokes. Heredity (family history) and race - Your stroke risk is greater if a parent, grandparent, sister or brother has had a stroke. African Americans have a much higher risk of death from a stroke than Caucasians do. This is partly because blacks have higher risks of high blood pressure, diabetes and obesity.
Avatar f tn Hi I had a stroke 3 months ago. I am 33. It was scary coz I always thought strokes only happened to old people. Is there anyone else out there who's had a stroke at a young age?
Avatar m tn Hi Brodo256, I also had a stroke and have been looking for groups/message boards for young people who have had strokes. I haven't found too much, but there are a few groups on facebook. It seems like all the resources are for parents of young kids/babies who have had strokes or much older people who have had strokes. When did you have your stroke? How have you been doing since?
Avatar m tn i was on holiday about 8 months ago when this happened i was on a ski slope in austria when i collapsed and i was taken to hospital in germany where they ran test after test for 3 weeks to which they came to conclude i had a stroke nnow back to 4 days ago i had another stroke im currently in hospital just had mri ct mra reading of the heart but my question is im only 26 is this normal and will i have more strokes in the near future
Avatar f tn I am not trying to scare you but a stroke is rather serious. Do some research and if you think the symptoms match up force her to see a doctor. whether she believes in them or not this could save her from having a more serious stroke, which could do anything from paralyzing one side of the body or even death. I'm sorry to scare or worry. As I said, I may be wrong, this is only a best guess from a college student, who works with children and took a first aid and cpr course.
667923 tn?1421462724 I have been experiencing intense pain,numbness on the whole left side of body. The weakness has been so bad that I can't even move my left hand or foot.I felt like a 40lb. weight was laying on my hand and foot to keep it from moving. I felt like I was having a stroke and after doing research on it, I did. Maybe it was an Ischemic attack or TIA. I have had 3 or 4 of these attacks and don't want to wind up having a full blown STROKE.
Avatar f tn Adult female, suffered mild stroke Jan 2004 at the age of 36. Successful recovery from that event and on a daily regimen of Plavix and 81 mg aspirin. In the last few months have experienced a couple of headaches. None that could be pinpointed to anything other than I thought it was change of weather and/or sinus related.
2175879 tn?1338355028 It was determined today by another doctor that I had a mild stroke, not a TIA. That explains atleast for me, why although my symptoms have improved but not gone away like a TIA is expected to. Reading all these questions on TIA sure helped me deal with this, but I think that there are other people that have had strokes and been labled as TIA's because, just like me, the stroke fixed itself, but has left its footprint.
Avatar f tn Now I am a 37-year-old who likes to go out with her friends and walks funny. Young people CAN have a stroke. I have been kicked out of THREE places because they think I'm loaded by the way I walk. PEOPLE NEED TO COME OUT OF THEIR HOUSE AND EDUCATE THE MASSES THAT IT IS POSSIBLE THAT YOUNG PEOPLE HAVE STROKES! Now my question: why cant I lose weight!?! (Whahhhh) I ate everything in the hospital, could not move much, kept gaining weight.
Avatar m tn Somehow I think if cannabis use were the cause for young people having strokes, many more people would have suffered them. I do think there is a problem with not knowing what someone is getting, in terms of strength. We need testing and decriminalization. http://www.eastbayexpress.
Avatar f tn Thinking I had a stroke or anurysm or something.
Avatar n tn Have been told of great success stories for young stroke victims from people as the young brain can do many things that may be an older brain would not. Does any one have any success stories to share w/ us - it just gives us hope - he is a 6'2 , 240 lb high school football player set to play college football next year pre stroke. Any info would help - thank you and God Bless.
350555 tn?1196587877 Well, I feel like I have symptoms of a stroke. Today my left side of my face and my left hand and fingers feel like they are tingling. More like pins and needles. I feel this on the left side of my body. Pins and needle feeling down my left arm, and my face on the left side and cheek is really tingling. I go see the Dr. this next week. I have had symptoms like this before and it comes and goes. I do have an anxiety disorder, but I don't consciously feel as though I'm having anxiety....
Avatar m tn It sounds like a mini stroke, or Transient ischemic attack (TIA). Because she has had a stroke in the past, her brain might be predisposed to suffering TIAs. Some with TIAs can get a child-like voice and mannerisms afterwards. The eye movement and the lack of memory point to a stroke. A stroke is when the blood flow gets interrupted or reduced to a certain part of the brain There are some people who regularly get TIAs wiithout the damage of a full blown stroke (paralysis).
Avatar f tn You have to wonder why is Stroke affecting so many young people nowadays.
Avatar n tn Young people can also have stroke but the causes and risk factors would be quite differernt. A common senerio is one related to sudden increased activity causing a trauma to one of the big vessels in the neck area. In addtion, your symptoms make me suspect several other things. One is that you might have had a seizure at night, and waken up with the "hang-over" effect (called "post-ictal", in medical term).
1474856 tn?1288289049 numbness or weakness in the face, arm, or leg, especially on one side of the body; confusion or difficulty in talking or understanding speech; trouble seeing in one or both eyes; and difficulty with walking, dizziness, or loss of balance and coordination. I have this all the time, but the Dr's just keep saying it is just migraine. I am so worried about feeling like this constantly, but i encountered a problem when i tried to see a new Dr within the Henry Ford health system.
Avatar m tn I have read that this logically can increase stroke risk in young individuals, and given that I was so young my stroke risk might be higher at a later point. My question is therefore: Do my symptoms resemble a TIA (dry mouth/memory)? And if they do, would people recommend I follow this up with my GP in view to investigating this further for repair?
