On March 22, 2015 I was watching the NCAA tournament like most sports fans. When the night concluded, I was about to get up when I suddenly felt numb on my right side. This was odd and caught me by surprise but I thought little of it and figured I had just been sitting too long etc. I waited 5-10 minutes and the feeling vanished. So I thought little of it and went about my normal business.
The next day I felt completely fine and went about my normal business.Around 7:30 PM I was sitting at my desk just relaxing, when all of a sudden the symptoms overtook me again just out of nowhere! Thinking it would just leave me like it did before I remained still thinking I must have overdone it or stressed myself out to much. I figured if I just waited it out like before it would just disappear. I waited several minutes for it to leave, but I still felt the same!
I was talking to my buddy Scott and told him what was going on. He said he didn’t mean to scare me but it sounded like a stroke. My first thought was “really? That can’t be possible at my age” After I finished wrapping up our conversation I told mom about how I was feeling and what Scott told me. We decided it was already late and if I still felt the same in the morning we would go to the emergency room.
