What Are Signs of a Stroke for Younger Patients?


– Younger patients, they may
or may not really realize that they are having
stroke, and we see that. If they are getting some
kind of little dizziness, they might just ignore it. They’re getting little bit of headache, they may just ignore it,
it’s because younger people always think they’re invincible. If the arm is going little bit of numb when they’re waking up in the morning, the tendency is to think, well,
we might have slept on it. But if it’s still not going
away after you wake up you know something’s going wrong. So younger people,
particularly women, if they are on birth control pills or
hormones, they are really prone to have these stroke
risk factors increased. If you are a smoker,
you’re doing drug abuse, you’re a heavy alcoholic, you happen to be overweight, obese. Your family history, which
I didn’t mention earlier, is positive for stroke,
you’ve got to alert yourself. It’s just not a simple
dizziness and I’m still losing balance as I’m walking
to the bathroom from my bed, somethings really wrong. It could be stroke, so
they need to pay attention.
