I seem to have gone through something I can't explain. My neck became swollen and I developed a huge headache for the last three days. Now my eyes have dark rings around them and I didn't notice till today. I don't think I've had a stroke?

A- is lifting both arms above your head difficult?
S- Speech Is your speech slurred?
T -If, in any number or all of the above answers is positive , TELEPHONE the ER

Remember the acronym F.A.S.T. because speed is essential.

You will know the answer to your original questions by now .
Please tell us how you got on?


Get to a DR or ER quickey


see a pro....sounds kinda like Mono to me, but i know nothing.

That's what I was thinking...that it sounds like Mono


Sounds like an infection, if it is or if it is not, see a doctor and antibiotics should quickly sort it out, and if it is something more serious they will tell you.


You might consider getting a physician's opinion instead of ours. That doesn't sound good.


Not a doctor! And don't play one on TV.

The five warning signs of stroke are:
Sudden onset of weakness or numbness on one side of the body.
Sudden speech difficulty or confusion.
Sudden difficulty seeing in one or both eyes.
Sudden onset of dizziness, trouble walking or loss of balance.
Sudden, severe headache with no known cause.
