I am 25 years old this year. Had a thalamic haemorrhage in January. I have all along been really healthy, no high blood pressure, no high cholestrol or any other medical condition. I don't smoke nor drink. I went for CT scan, MRI, angiogram and also catheter angiogram. The doctors could not find anything. No AVM and also aneurysm. Basically, no one knows why it happens. I am just curious what exactly happened to me and if it would recur ever again. My symptom was numbness on right half of my body but no weakness at all. I could still run and jump and take the plane back home from Bali when it happened to me.

If you're being told, "... this is just a wake up call for you. You have to listen to your body" and are not being told what to do, then you need to find another neurologist who can advise you. As you're indicating, that is important to find out to avoid another one if that is possible.
With what you've been told, your instincts are right to find out. Good luck.

I had a stroke at 47 - no one knows why. There's very little damage from it. I also had an encephalopathy - my brain just up and decided not to breath for me. I was on a respirator for 7 days, then it passed and I was back to breathing on my own again. They don't know why. I think sometimes with all our technological advances we see "proof" of a lot of things that used to occur spontaneusly and then pass. There are lots of people who go around with herniated discs, for example, and never had any problems with them. But now we do a MRI and have to fix those areas. If you're doing well, get back to life and enjoy it! You have been given a gift. Regards - ElizaJane
