The network cited the case of a 29-year-old man who suffered a severe and sudden headache, and it then became clear that it was caused by a stroke that caused bleeding in the brain, but doctors were able to save him. .
Dr. Muhammad al-Ghanim, of HCA Medical Care in Houston, Texas, who is responsible for the sick young man’s condition, said the latter’s wife did not think he would survive.
Al-Ghanim considered that “29 years is too young to be suffering from a stroke.”

The American Stroke Association reports that the incidence of this serious condition among people age 49 or younger in the United States has continued to increase over the past 30 years.
“About 15 percent of strokes occur in people 50 or younger,” said Traci Morden, an official with the association.
With the arrival of May, National Stroke Awareness Month in the United States, doctors have issued warnings of the signs of stroke, particularly loss of facial muscle control, arm weakness and difficulty speaking.
Al-Ghanem says scientists are still searching for an explanation for the prevalence of stroke among young adults.
And he adds to “Fox News”: “In my opinion, it’s because of the unhealthy lives that we live.
Lots of junk food and unhealthy food, and people don’t exercise because of their busy work and lifestyles.”
Al-Ghanem also believes that the neglect of health care or regular visits to the doctor during the corona pandemic may lead to strokes in young people more often later.
