Woman films 'selfie' video whilst having a stroke, after doctors told her it was stress

Quick-thinking Stacey Yepes from Canada filmed herself on her phone whilst suffering a mini-stroke. After doctors insisted she was suffering from stress and sent her away, Stacey recognised her partial face paralysis and numbness in her arm return as she was driving, so she pulled over and grabbed her phone. In the video, she tries to lift her left arm with difficulty and says she finds it hard to point at specific things like her nose. Stacey also films herself following the advice of the doctors to simply breathe slowly in and out to manage stress, but the symptoms persist. After filming the video, she visited a different hospital from her first visit and was told by doctors she was having a mini-stroke. Further tests confirmed that she had a small blockage in one of the arteries supplying her brain. Report by Claire Lomas.

    Doctors are paid murderers they slowly kill people keeping them sick. There wouldnt be any money if everyone was healthy right all these years of science trial and error you really think there arent cures for anything?

  2. Coach Gomes on April 16, 2021 at 11:42 pm

    I did a Ted Talk on how I stayed in power and regained my self after focusing on self love and will power. I suffered a stroke at the young age of 30 and the hospitals did not know how to treat me or get me to rehabilitate because of the way i was healing so fast. https://youtu.be/Cr0Mj-JYrnA

    same thing happened to me and got turned away as panic attack I was like nope you are incorrect. It was my first and very scary but you actually arnt panicking it’s like an out of body feeling

  4. big92fs on April 16, 2021 at 11:43 pm

    She faked that

  5. Edwin Guevara on April 16, 2021 at 11:43 pm

    This is horrifying. I hope she recovered.

  6. cocaineinmyvein on April 16, 2021 at 11:44 pm

    How is she not FREAKING out? Hope this woman is okay.

    That what happens when you meat and junk food. Let’s let natural selection get rid of idiots.

    She’s faking it

    Canadian doctors suck ass.

    Life changing and hugely beneficial information is being withheld from the public.
    Lion’s mane mushrooms contain hericinone and erinacerine.
    These chemicals rejuvenate and regenerate nerves in the human body.
    They also cross the blood/brain barrier to work on nerves in the brain.
    This medicinal mushroom reverses the paralysis caused by strokes.
    If taken regularly, it will prevent strokes.

    There are many other practical applications for this fungus.
    It also combats Alzheimer’s disease and senior dementia.

    This mushroom can save lives.

    I got here by searching:

    Now I’m having a stroke

    And she’s having a stroke

    While he’s having a stroke

    We’re all having a stroke

    This is common. People being mutilated by the medical system and incompetence. Not willing to spend the time or do appropriate scan etc for a number of reasons. It’s just not reported in the media. Docs need to be portrayed as the ultimate good guys (as they are in pretty much 100% of doc dramas).

  19. Iam Garcia on April 16, 2021 at 11:55 pm

    Hopefully this lady got a good treatment.

  20. OldsXCool on April 16, 2021 at 11:55 pm

    Universal healthcare for the win! Seriously that could have killed her. Slurring speech, partial face paralysis, numbness in her left arm???? Stress? Really doctor? The doctor should have at the very least told her to take a full strength aspirin everyday to prevent possible a stroke. Maybe I should be a doctor in Canada. I’d be a frickin’ genius!

  21. chania bartley on April 16, 2021 at 11:56 pm

    i hope shes well

  22. Devs on April 16, 2021 at 11:56 pm

  25. KittenLover 1990 on April 17, 2021 at 12:00 am

    I hope she is okay my prayers are for you

  26. Eharper3 on April 17, 2021 at 12:00 am

    Why not call an ambulance instead of whipping your camera out?

  27. XDFlawless on April 17, 2021 at 12:01 am

    This shit makes me wanna eat brocolli

  28. drycube2 on April 17, 2021 at 12:02 am

    Not saying this to be sarcastic or mean in anyway, but the doctor probably was so quick to dismiss her because she probably had little to no insurance. If you’re poor or lack insurance, good luck…so sad.

  29. bowmosexual on April 17, 2021 at 12:03 am

    Hope the lady is ok now

  30. amethyst0285 on April 17, 2021 at 12:05 am

    My aunt had a stroke and she didn’t do all this.

  31. Ali Hashmi on April 17, 2021 at 12:07 am

    Wow Thanks, this must have been really difficult for her to make. Hope she is okay all these years later.

  33. mikel on April 17, 2021 at 12:09 am

    Thats not a very good dr. Its always important to find a reg dr n good hospital to. But im trying to find information on strokes.

  34. Golden Truth on April 17, 2021 at 12:11 am

    Sometimes when i smoke weed my left side gets tingly and on one occasion my arm felt weakened. Possible stroke? Only ever happened like 4 times- tge tinglyness that is.

  35. Andy V. on April 17, 2021 at 12:11 am

    I’d be calling 911, not doing selfies

  36. Sprite Bonn on April 17, 2021 at 12:12 am

    First of all to get an ambulance to take you to the hospital you behind the wheel while you’re having a stroke it’s not the smartest thing to do and to get on camera and start talking about it precious time is ticking away and you’re bullshiting for YouTube.

  37. sneksnekitsasnek on April 17, 2021 at 12:16 am

    king of the hill lied to me

  38. Steven Criscione on April 17, 2021 at 12:19 am

    I think she is a okay and did the right thing because the fact that she got you a hospital before passing out is a blessing in itself…

  39. Caeley French on April 17, 2021 at 12:20 am

    i had something just like this happen to me when i was heavily doing meth before i went to rehab. when this happened just like all of a sudden i wasnt able to read or understand anything on my laptop screen, i had to spell words out in my head and one word at a time make them out to speak which was very stuttery, then i kept getting interrupted because i took so long to get one word out and id forget the entire sentence i was trying to say. i was panicking, i felt like i couldnt sit or stand because my muscles were "melting" and i was weak, the scariest thing was when i couldnt move my left leg, the calf muscle was like balled up and just stayed that way, but there was no pain. i also had the tingles in my face especially in my jaw and around my mouth. my boyfriend thought i was being funny and then got pissed off and threatened to leave, i cried and begged him to take me to the hospital and he refused because he was paranoid about fucking drug testing. i never went to the er, and im ok now but i believed i was going to die that night

  40. IGC FAMO on April 17, 2021 at 12:23 am

    They shouldn’t be doing that that’s wrong

  41. perever nutyy on April 17, 2021 at 12:23 am

    Did you sue the hospital?

  42. Kelly Anderson on April 17, 2021 at 12:23 am

    Doctors don’t know everything my father was told by his doctor that his problems were nothing more than stress too, a month later his heart stopped he needed a new heart ASAP, doctors can be wrong, really wrong..

  43. Smack pop cracky smak on April 17, 2021 at 12:25 am

    Awww dats sad

  44. Shieron Phillips on April 17, 2021 at 12:31 am

    My husband just went through this. I am glad that you sort help. Some doctors just don’t know what they are talking about. I am glad that my husband got to the hospital in time and thankful they saw the signs.

  45. Savannah Reyes on April 17, 2021 at 12:31 am

    It’s called belpolsmy I had it. It’s very hard to control it. I feel you pain.

  46. eugene bell on April 17, 2021 at 12:33 am

    I was told mine was mental illness and they suggested I check into mental hospital, so year there are some dumb assed doctors.

  47. Bob Jones on April 17, 2021 at 12:34 am

    Many doctors are idiots !
