A stroke at 33

Hi all

I’m Maroulla and this year I had a stroke as a complication of cerebral venous sinus thrombosis. It’s been scary as my symptoms were a headache that was so severe! I never had headaches so unsure as to what was going on. I hope to connect with people who have had a similar experience and get an idea of help and support I can get. Any help will be greatly received :relaxed:


@maroulla.w.anderson welcome to our friendly forum and I’m sorry you had a stroke.

You will find a-lot of support and advice from us SS.

Your stroke is similar I think to mine and a few others. Cerebellar lacuna infarct at back of my head!

Did you have the AstraZeneca jab by any chance?

I hope you are starting to recover and send my best wishes to you. Listen to your body and rest when needed.

Help wise… your GP can put you in touch with counselling, there are help groups and the stroke forum on here offer a lot of support.

Kind regards Loraine

Hi, welcome to our forum, so sorry to hear of your stroke at such a young age. Hopefully you will find this a useful website. Feel free to ask questions or to rant and have a moan if you feel it necessary. Another website you may find helpful is www.differentstrokes.co.uk a UK stroke charity providing a unique service to younger stroke survivors. Hope you find them useful.

Regards Sue

Thanks for getting in touch and I had Pfizer but they’re unsure to the cause of the clots that I had. Seems like a supportive forum so I’m glad for the advice
