Did I have a stroke?
An_252134 posted:
About 4-5 years ago I had an episode in which I collapsed but before I go in to detail about the incident allow me to first explain the week down the shore before the episode. I went down the shore with friends to party for MDW drank, smoked weed, & popped ecstasy "hard tablets" the entire weekend down there, only eating one hash brown from McDonalds during my stay. I returned home first full day home no issues until the following day I decided to meet up with my younger brother & his friends to smoke weed in his friends garage and during the session I quickly developed a pain & sound in my head that sounded & felt like two drill guns going through evenly pressured on either side of my head temple area then a snap. Did not see a white light or anything just remember waking up on the floor feeling my heart beat through my hands and picking myself up quickly to stand & felt dizzy. Then a high pitch frequency sound knocked me out & again wake up on the floor in panic get up & try to leave the garage but the high pitch frequency emerged again & down I go again. A total of 3 times that I collapsed may have been a fourth time, remember it was years ago. I never went to see a doctor because I never told my family even my brother that saw it happen in front of him never said a word. I do believe this incident is the cause to my near non existent memory & difficulty conversating but otherwise I am healthy just curious as to what a professional thinks might have happened. I plan on getting an MRI in a few years to see if there is serious damage but I was a young kid when this happened pretty much adapted my life to deal with it. Guess the knowledge is more just for a piece of mind. Thank you for taking the time to read my story & I appreciate any & all replies.

It's anyone's guess with your mixture of alcohol, drugs and not eating. You can still see a neurologist who could diagnose you. You don't seem at all troubled by your lack of memory or difficulty conversing, but if so, I would get to a neurologist sooner than in a few years. Good luck to you.
