I am 24 and had a stroke in January caused by blood pressure that wasn't under control. I didn't know I had HBP but it does run in my family. I am now on medicine for my BP and it is under control but I feel like a freak. My left side was partly paralized but is starting to come back pretty good. I have a limp and my speech is still slured. It was very scary. I went to doctor because I thought I had the flue and they found I was having a mild stroke. I don't know anyone my age with stroke problem and I would like to know if anyone else out there had a similar situation. I would like to hear from you soon. I feel all alone in the world.
