    Great advice! Thanks guys and have a great weekend!

    I hurt my neck one day when I was doing some neck exercises. Then I was feeling lightheaded and felt like passing out. I ended up getting an MRI last week and found out I had a stroke along with vertigo. I’m only 32 years old and I eat right and excercise. I do have osteoarthritis in my neck and low back. Doc told me to take Asprin once a day. What should I do?

  3. Kelly S on March 14, 2021 at 10:20 pm

    Thank you for sharing this information with us. Best to be proactive rather than reactive

    When I was 10 years old, I was watching TV alone with my grandmother (88) and I witnessed her having a stroke. She slumped down and there was facial droop on one side. She could not talk. It scared me, and I ran and got my mother. She ended up dying within a few weeks from complications from the stroke. She never smoked, but had fallen about 6 months earlier and broke her hip.

  5. Wendy's World on March 14, 2021 at 10:26 pm

    I had thunderclap headaches for two weeks, told a doc & he said I was over medicating of pain killers. Then it got weird and I went to the hospital. Told them I think I had a stroke and I was admitted and released two days later. Haven’t had a headache since

    I observe this video as a complete advertising campaign for the products mentioned in it. Hoping, that this won’t be the main trend in the future and money making will prevail over helping .

  7. paisley dreamz on March 14, 2021 at 10:27 pm

    was at 3 different docs for "vertigo" and falls for over a year. the last one before stroke said they would do eppley even though my eyeballs weren’t doing that classic movement. 4 months after that I had brain stem stroke. I am so lucky to be alive, grateful for every single day I have with family!! like these guys said, you know if something’s wrong. I wish I would’ve kept looking for an answer before it was too late.

  8. Brenda Bloomfield on March 14, 2021 at 10:28 pm

    i have hemiplegic migraines, and i have those symptoms monthly.

  9. videotapeses on March 14, 2021 at 10:28 pm

    I believe that book helped me quit smoking 7 years ago 💜

  10. Jeanette Spaur on March 14, 2021 at 10:33 pm

    Just some info.

    Not all strokes happen in the brain. I had a stroke in 2014 at the C5 level. Leaving me a quadriplegic on both side. So the symptoms arent always one sided numbness and tingling.

  11. Jackie Bohannon on March 14, 2021 at 10:34 pm

    Wow Thank you Bob Brad Good Information ❤❤❤

    I got a TIA due to a low carb high fat & meat diet which gave me heart arrythmia and damaged arteries. The TIA destroyed my balance system, it was terrible. When I strongly reduced all animal products and increased all types of veggies and fruits and nuts etc, I lost weight, got normal cholesterol again and my heart arrythmia dissapeared and my dizziness is almost gone – but the whole healing journey took more than 2 years. You dont only loose weight at the table, you will also determine your health with your food choices.

  15. Sue Sung on March 14, 2021 at 10:40 pm

    Brad spoke a key point. You can have one and not realize. You may know something isn’t quite right, but you don’t know what.

  16. hoii on March 14, 2021 at 10:40 pm

    if someone smokes for 30 years then stops, they most definitely will retain some lung damage and other damage

  17. janae shepherd on March 14, 2021 at 10:41 pm

    Wish you would address Moya moya disease. This was the cause of my stroke. I was 36 when I had my stroke and had none of the risk factors.

    Great video, no one cares about Ellen DeGeneres.

  19. Elaine Culbert on March 14, 2021 at 10:42 pm

    You guys do a great service with your excellent, easy-to-understand videos … just want to say a big “thank you”! 👍

  20. Jelizabeth Petrie on March 14, 2021 at 10:42 pm

    I mistook TIA’s for an allergic reaction. Went full blown ischemic attack. Fast forward from hospital to rehab center. Many stroker survivors mistake early stroke signs for flu symptoms and sadly think laying down helps. Causing many to miss the three hour window. Mine was a cervical dissection from holistic service. Instead use physical therapist & massage for muscle ailments.

    I had a stroke at the age of 21 three years ago because of birth control pills

    The audio with the Madonna headsets is making the videos unwatchable

    My Brother had a stroke and recovered Thank God in 2019. Family received the heartbreaking news that one of our Aunty’s has terminal cancer Bless her xx neither of them smoked not even one cigarette their entire lives. I have other stories too, God bless you both

    Watch Forks Over Knives, What The Health, Game Changers. Read How Not to Die, The China Study, Engine 2 Diet. Eat real food (not dead animals or anything that came out of their body). A whole food plant based diet is the only thing documented in the medical literature to reverse cardiovascular diseases, and within 3-4 weeks. Check out the non-profit site – reverse type II diabetes, high cholesterol, hypertension, cardiovascular disease, and reduce your risks of stroke to virtually none.

  26. eric martin Bosse on March 14, 2021 at 10:50 pm

    Weight loss is 70% diet and 30% exercise to round it up 🙂

  27. Richard Monroe on March 14, 2021 at 10:51 pm

    I had a vertebral artery dissection which caused a stroke. I had 2 tia a few weeks before the stroke. My right arm went completely numb for a minute 2x in about 10 days. I shouldn’t have ignored it.

  28. THATSHODDYGUY on March 14, 2021 at 10:54 pm

    Why do you mention cholesterol being way off the charts? There are no credible studies showing what too much is

  29. iggy the iguana on March 14, 2021 at 10:55 pm

    Put me in for the giveaway 😀😀😀

  30. Marian Hale on March 14, 2021 at 10:55 pm

    I am disabled and confined to a wheelchair, I am very slim cannot eat very well due to an overactive ileostomy.
    But I have been getting episodes of loss of consciousness whilst sitting in my wheelchair, I come to and don’t know where I am sometimes .
    I have high cholesterol but have not had a blood test for several years now.
    Today I had a cataract check up they found a blood clot behind my left eye.
    Funnily enough I have blurred vision in that eye and the shape of that eye differs to my right eye.
    I also experience pressure on that side of my head. My blood pressure is on the low side so that cannot be the reason for a TIA.
    I get loss of sensation and tingling in my fingers but in both hands??
    I have an AP shunt in -situ draining a thoracic syrinx.
    Could this be blocked and attributing to the momentary blackouts??
    I do not take any medication such as anti coagulants, should I start to take aspirin daily??
    I am female aged 65 years old, any advice would be gratefully received.
    I am also greatly fatigued and can spend most of my day asleep, and still not feel refreshed afterwards.
    I have never smoked and I don’t drink alcohol at all.

  31. Tomas Arndt on March 14, 2021 at 10:56 pm

    Very interesting. I had a hemorrhagic stroke about 3.5 years ago and still suffering the consequences. Now I learned that there were warning signs and I had a small stroke about 1.5 years earlier.

  32. Sakana Kaizen on March 14, 2021 at 10:56 pm

    Hi, Bob & Brad, my uncle passed away from a stroke last year. Thank you for this PSA. I hope that it will save someone. Take care.

  33. Shreyashi Barua on March 14, 2021 at 10:56 pm

    Hi Bob & Brad……my husband had a ischemic stroke last month at 14 th March……so is there any risk of second stroke ? The only problem he is facing is he is having knee pain.

  34. P Streech on March 14, 2021 at 10:57 pm

    In your opinion of course Bob 😂👊☮️

  35. Rita O. on March 14, 2021 at 10:57 pm

    Brad saying an upbeat “Enjoy”! at the very end cracked me up. Just a wee bit out of place. Love him to bits though. 🙂 <3

  36. Jason Cheramie on March 14, 2021 at 10:58 pm

    Can yall do a proper walking video?

  37. Jonathan Gordon on March 14, 2021 at 11:00 pm

    Perfect video title for online hypochondriac "search engine" self-diagnosing doctors.

  38. dorje chang on March 14, 2021 at 11:00 pm

    Hi guys. I really like your videos. I want to mention; I don’t think the microphones are helping your production value. it sounds like you are presenters at a convention or fair.  Thanks

  39. Linda Dixon on March 14, 2021 at 11:01 pm

    A serious message well delivered. Thank you guys.

  40. Kristina Johansson on March 14, 2021 at 11:01 pm

    Thanks! Very good information.

  44. California Karen789 on March 14, 2021 at 11:06 pm

    My mom had a lot of TIA’s. And two strokes.

  45. Drago Nelson: The Bulldawg on March 14, 2021 at 11:07 pm

    Watch the documentary PRESCRIPTION THUGS!!

    Ready to have your mine blown. Plaque can not stick to our artery walls. It’s impossible. What it is sticking to is the inflammation.

    Nutrition wise do the WHOLE30

    BP went down 40 points in 2 weeks.
    Doctors go to 7 years of med school sped 4 hours on nutrition

    Women on cholesterol medication over 55 the mortality rate is way higher than those that are not.

  46. biro24 on March 14, 2021 at 11:07 pm

    I read the title and ignored the video, but I kept on seeing it when I came back on to youtube, it scared me lol

  47. Pam Claypool on March 14, 2021 at 11:07 pm

    I need one them .

  48. ASL HeartandSoul on March 14, 2021 at 11:07 pm

    My friends and family members are all getting up to that age where we need to be on the lookout for TIAs. This is a good reminder that it can happen in a few minutes, and to take it seriously. Is it still true that one can test for a stroke by smiling, lifting one’s arms up, and singing or saying a short verse or passage?

  49. Jacee K on March 14, 2021 at 11:07 pm

    In 2015 my hubby got up in the middle of the night to use the rr. Upon laying back down he was hit with the classic "thunderclap" headache. This was also 6 days after an orthopedic surgery. I work in the medical field (OT..ironically often with stroke survivors) so I pretty much knew he’d "thrown a clot" and was having a stroke. I called 911, got him to the hospital fast. Only to have the ER Dr and staff insist it was an atypical migraine. Nothing I said made a difference..nothing. 30 hours too late for tPA we were told, "Your husband has had a stroke". I still can’t discuss it without getting upset. Sadly one can do everything right, yet still not get the care that is oh so necessary.
