: my friend (15) has recently (2 days ago) had what they called, a minor stroke and i am really curious to find out:
: *what may have caused it?
: *will she fully recover?
: *what can i do?
: please write back
__________________________________________________If you go here:http://freenet.buffalo.edu/~bastroke/risks.html (or you can just click on the link below) you will see some of the risk factors for strokes. However, they seemed to have left one off. The birth control pill also causes strokes, and it's what caused mine (when I was only 22). Your friend's age is probably a good thing. I was told that if I would've had my stroke when I was older I probably would be dead. It's been a little bit over a year since my stroke and I think I'm recovering well.
As far as what you could do to help your friend, I would say be patient, because patience is really what I needed after my stroke.
