I am 26 and nervous about the possibility of stroke. I saw an article where a woman had a stroke from having her hair washed at the salon. I just had my hair done yesterday and my neck hurts from the sink. I am nervous it will happen to me?

If : If you have very strong-smelling stool, and if it's very dark in color, you may be having melena.
