    Worried about another stroke 22 year old female

    Hello, I am a 22 year old female and I had a stroke on May 23 last year 2016. I do not have any visible signs of the stroke although my right side is a bit weaker than my left. I am healthy and the doctors do not know what caused the stroke. They said it was a blood clot in my leg and I also have a PFO (hole in my heart which many people have as well). Anyways my concern is this. It was my senior year of college after I had the stroke and I continued doing most of my unhealthy habits a few months....

    panic,confusion & unconsciousness

    The other day I was in a very busy store and was feeling uncomfortable (which I thought was the cause, too many people) so I left and went to my car and sat for a few minutes. I could't remember if I had eaten so I went to the gas station and bought a snickers and something to drink. I got really panicked and disoriented in the gas station and had trouble finding my way out. This is the last thing I remember before crashing my car. Apparently I drove about half a mile then off the road and into....

    DVT-Factor V Leiden

    A few years ago, I was diagnosed with Factor V Leiden after having my second DVT in 6 years. I was prescribed Lovenox injections while in the hospital. Afterwards I was prescribed Warfarin first, then Jantoven; neither worked for me because I could never get my PT levels within range. I'm currently taking Xarelto & it seems to be working. However, I've recently started having severe headaches accompanied by nosebleeds & I'm just wondering if it could be caused by the Xarelto.....

    Can a Concussion be a Catalyst to a Stroke

    Late last December I was stopped for a light and rear ended by a car when the driver was pre-occupied on their cell phone. I only felt a grogginess after my head snapped forward but thought I would be OK. The grogginess soon became a mix of dizziness, periodic headaches, sudden, short term memory loss and a noticeable loss of balance when I hike or play basketball. I saw my doctor about week or so later for a yearly physical and mentioned my symptoms. Blood tests revealed my cholesterol was higher....
