Hi mrsreverend, I'm so sorry to hear about all of your strokes. You are so young. Just out of couriousity, has anyone checked you out for a PFO? A lot of very young, active people that have unexplained strokes have been found to have PFO's.

Gday Catmom5 sorry i have not written back but my son has just had a operation to remove his wisdom teeth all four had to be cut out under general anesthetic so because he has a heart condition we waited on egg shells to the end of operation but he came out of it well thanks to God I have not had a check for a pfo but i am going to ask the doctor about having it checked into thankyou for letting me know about a pfo i had a look on web for diagnosis what a pfo was kind of hole in heart i have a lot of palpatations and had a heart attack when i was 20 on top of my strokes that would explain a lot why it has happened so many times look for ward hearing from you soon God Bless
Someone started it someone will end it, we must endure till the end
