Is there a specific drug for stroke? Is there a specific drug for stroke? For about 5 years i've been having symptoms of stroke and doen't want to go to the hospital. I'm 21 years of age, are there prescriptions i can take?
As : As the name implies, a stroke is an abrupt onset of loss of neurological function caused by either bleeding into, or by lack of blood supply to, a part of the central nervous system (usually the brain, although strokes can also happen to the spinal cord). The stroke usually leaves a permanent injury, although function may be only temporarily impaired. For these reasons, having stroke-like symptoms for 5 years is a pretty good indication that the symptoms are most likely not related to stroke. There are other neurological conditions that can cause neurological symptoms that come "out of the blue", cause a noticeable change for a period of time, and then disappear without a trace. These conditions include epilepsy, migraine, sleep disorders, and psychiatric syndromes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
