Dr. Oz: Three Young Women Have Strokes
Dr. Oz talked on his show about how anyone can have a stroke, not just older people, despite the popular perception. He spoke to three women who had strokes when they were young. Strokes are happening more often to women in their 20s, 30s, and 40s. Jennifer had a stroke in her 20s. She had no risk factors. She was young and active. Megan was on the pill and thought she was pregnant, but it turned out to be a stroke. Diana was 30 when she had her stroke. She’d surfed that day and even done some yoga. But it turned out she had a tiny tear in her artery in her neck.
