Possible stroke symptoms

Good evening, I've been suffering from pain in the carotid arteries along with huge headaches and numbness in the hands and feet. The symptoms seem to worsen when I'm active. I'm 19 years old and fit. I have never experienced any sort of medical complications before. Could these be early signs of a stroke?

Hello leon77,

While we cannot give medical advice or a diagnosis on this board, here is some information on the warning signs of stroke that you might find helpful. I suggest you make an appointment to see your doctor for a physical to rule out the possibility of a future stroke or other medical condition.

Best wishes,
Atti
