Sarah Porter, from Portland, Maine, was sitting in a college math class when she suddenly went “foggy.” She didn’t think anything of it — she just figured she was tired.
Sarah kept writing notes, but her University of Maine classmate looked alarmed. She told Sarah that she had just passed out, and that her face was twitching. It looked like she’d had a seizure, the girl told Sarah.
Still, Sarah wasn’t too worried. When she stood up, though, everything changed. She couldn’t feel the right side of her body, she had a terrible headache, and her face was spasming.
At just 20 years old, Sarah was having a stroke.
After the weird symptoms she had in her math class, Sarah limped back to her dorm to call her parents, who are both doctors.
Like this woman who recognized her own stroke symptoms, they immediately recognized she was having a stroke and told Sarah to immediately go to the hospital.
By the time she got to the hospital, Sarah had lost almost all control of her face and couldn’t talk. Her brother, who met her there, explained to the nurse what happened.
Then the nurse said the most shocking thing: she thought Sarah was faking it.[H/T Daily Mail]
