Might it be that a a 17 year old have a heart attack or stroke?

Rare: Rare but possible. Congenital disease such as abnormal origin of coronary artery and hypertrophic ("thickened") heart disease can result in "heart attack". Inherited diseases that cause abnormal tissue can predispose to aneurysms and even dissections. Inflammatory diseases can also cause similar cardiovascular events. There are quite few possible origins for teenage heart and vascular disease.

Is it okay for a 22 yr old to date a 17 yr old?

Is it okay for a 22 yr old to date a 17 yr old?

Maybe wait a little: Most 17 yr-olds are at a different emotional and cognitive maturity level than most 22 yr-olds, but a few 17 & 22 yr-olds could match up (that's one issue). Another issue is the legality of the dating. The law sees a 17 yr-old as a child, so a 22 yr-old may want to wait until the 17 yr-old is an adult. Also, at 17, one is finishing high school (much different from being a 22 yr-old college grad).

How does a 17 yr old male know if he has hodgkins lymohoma?

How does a 17 yr old male know if he has hodgkins lymohoma?

By going to a doctor: Unfortunately this is a diagnosis you cannot make on your own. Even an experienced doctor has to rely on a biopsy of the tumor tissue. However, generally a person with hodgkin's lymphoma has a large painless swelling usually in the neck or in the armpit. The person may run fever on and off, may lose weight, and may sweat a lot at night, but he may have none of these symptoms. See a doctor.

Eat healthy: Eat meals and follow a diet that is healthy but with a higher percentage of calories and carbohydrates that will let you slowly gain weight. Remember, to tone with exercises, so the weight you gain does not end up being deposited in areas on your body as fat. Best wishes.

I am a 17 yr old female and my blood pressure yesterday was 180/50. What could this mean?

I am a 17 yr old female and my blood pressure yesterday was 180/50. What could this mean?

More info needed: A single blood pressure reading is not diagnostic. Your upper number (systolic pressure) is elevated; lower number (diastolic) is fine. Many factors can affect blood pressure: stress, pain, smoking, even wrong size BP cuff. If BP is repeatedly elevated, pcp will begin treatment regimen. If this was machine reading, get BP checked by pcp or nurse or other reliable source.
