9 Stroke Symptoms that Are Common for Younger Women
Women are more vulnerable to strokes than men due to hormones. Nicole Weinberg, M.D., a cardiologist from Providence Saint John’s Health Center in California explains: “Higher hormone levels, particularly estrogen, compromise the integrity of blood vessels. They affect how the vessels stretch and contract, which can make them more vulnerable to arterial dissection [tears] and blood clots.”
Women taking birth control pills, illegal drugs or those who are smoking or pregnant are even at higher risk of a stroke. Stroke symptoms in younger women may differ from the stroke symptoms in older women or men. Here is the list of all stroke symptoms — those, common to all, and those that are only typical for younger women:
- Your face looks really off.
- Feeling clumsy and weak.
- It’s hard to speak.
- Dizziness and nausea.
- A really strong headache.
- Persistent incurable hiccups.
- Sudden, drastic, unexplained changes in your personality or mental state.
