Mysterious Coma
My 27 year old friend at the healthiest point of his life one day didn't show up for work.  They called to ask where he was and his family found him in a coma.  Physicians determined he'd suffered numerous strokes but haven't found a cause.  2 months after the incident they are no closer to finding a cause and his mother Gwenn who is wheelchair bound because of MS sits with him patiently waiting for him to recover.  I personally think they are missing something and we are all desperate to find a well known knowledgeable physician to look at his case!  Can anyone help or guide me in the right direction?  I've included links to a few stories about Luke that a local news companies did about him.
PLEASE HELP!!!!!
Desperate,
Jeremy

Hello and hope you are doing well.

Understand your predicament. But it is difficult to predict what caused the repeated strokes and coma. Strokes can be ischemic, when there is no blood supply to a particular area of the brain or they can be hemorrhagic, when there is bleeding. When there is no blood flow to a major part of the brain stem or loss of blood accompanied with swelling, coma can occur.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
