from a NYTimes article:

Quote:
His experience, complicated by a serious delay in diagnosis, is a powerful reminder that strokes can and do happen to young people. The sooner the correct diagnosis is made, the less likely the result will be lifelong impairment.

I guess the message is, don't ignore or shrug subtle warning signs. Also, be cautious of doctors shrugging of transient symptoms. Other reports cite incidents where patient symptoms weren't addressed in first visit to doctor or emergency room.
