That's great that you're doing so well in therapy. Your progress is due to your efforts. Keep it up.
I'm in pt,ot, and speech....I'm doing great in therapy! It wasn't a carotid
Artery Dissection. It certainly *****! Lol
There were tons of people who answered another question that may have been on a different website who had had strokes in their 20's and sometimes even younger.
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.
But given the many young people who answered that posting, strokes do just happen to very young people with no reason.
So sorry that it happened to you. Do you have any disabilties from it? If so, get PT, OT and if needed speech therapy ASAP.
I was active, I played sports....thanks for your help =)
Strokes at such a young age are usually due to inactivity. I can understand that you'd want to find a reason why this happened - so yu can avoid it in the future! I would quiz your neurologist further, or your primary care doc.
