I am 22 years old and suffered 4 small strokes after a horrible car accident. My vertebral artery was effected greatly from the strokes. Luckily I don't have much long term damage and was told I could be 100 % after a year.
I need to know what the effects are of living the lifestyle i lived before the car accident are. This lifestyle included -Drinking 6-12 beers on Fridays and Saturdays -Occasional Cigarette/Cigar Smoking -Regularly smoking Marijuana -Prescription to Adderol -College student -Regular Exercise
If i continue to live any aspects of this previous lifestyle am i putting myself in great risk for another stroke?? If so which ones in particular?
I just want to be able to live my old college life again but don't want to risk my life for itView Thread
