My father had two strokes which triggered epileptic episodes where he almost died. His were causes by a mix of diabetes, high blood pressure and heart problems and his untreated sleep apnea. He was also gorssly overmedicated by a careless primary physician. 

With my father I drastically changed his diet. Started him on a set breakfast every morning, three regular exercise days a week and kept him on a schedule. We found a new doctor, scaled back his meds he didn’t need and put him on anti epileptic meds as a precaution. He has been healthy for three years now and lost almost 80 pounds!(He was almost 300). 

Has watching your father and grandfather be I’ll made you nervous about you having a stroke down the road?

@Ninteenthchance:  The key is someone recognizing that you may be having a stroke, not you being able to signal that you are.

Educate your friends, family , worlk colleagues etc re the warning signs of stroke.

What are the five signs of stroke?


 Stroke can be treated. That’s why it is so important to recognize and respond to the warning signs.



If you experience any of these symptoms, call 9-1-1 or your local emergency number immediately. If a person is diagnosed with a stroke caused by a blood clot, doctors can administer a clot-busting drug available only at a hospital, and only within a few crucial hours after symptoms begin.* That’s why it is very important to be able to recognize the 5 warning signs of stroke and immediately call 9-1-1 or yourlocal emergency number.
