Insight into Misdiagnosis of Young Adult Stroke

I suppose this is a p.s. from the last post

A very short article called “Misdiagnosis of Some Young Adult Stroke Patients in ER” discusses – in proper medical terms – why younger stroke patients are often initially misdiagnosed, as I was.  (Click to read.)

It concludes as below; and I had the symptoms coloured in red by the time I got to A&E:

“No matter the age, people must also get to the hospital quickly if these stroke symptoms occur:

  • sudden numbness or weakness of the face, arm or leg, especially on one side of the body;
  • sudden confusion, trouble speaking or understanding;
  • sudden trouble seeing in one or both eyes;
  • sudden trouble walking, dizziness, loss of balance or coordination; and/or
  • sudden, severe headache with no known cause.”
