In brief: CVA

Brain stem is considerably higher than where you were injured.
Brain stem stroke could be traumatic but more usually a vascular phenomenon. I note you are on warfarin, this would make you a little higher risk if involved in trauma.

In brief: Not Likely related

The herniated disks have nothing to do with a significant increase in stroke risk, if that is your question.
