may is stroke awareness month and there has been a sharp increase of strokes among young adults. >> and one of the those victims was emily wellborn, running a race in rochester, new york, when the unthinkable happened. >> three years ago i laced up my shoes for a three and a half mile race. i was in the best shape i'd ever been but at the one mile marker i felt a sudden piercing unbearable pain near my eyebrow. as a runner, i trained myself to run through aches and pains and thought "i can't stop now. just one more step." but the pain extended from my eye across the top of my head to the back of my neck. i eventually finished the race but after crossing the finish line i couldn't move my left hand and couldn't even open a
water bottle. i fell when i tried to do a simple stretch. my face was lopsided and by this time i was 100% paralyzed on my left side. a doctor at the race told me i was having a stroke and was immediately rushed to the hospital. i wondered if i would ever run again, if i would ever see my parents again. i was 27 years old and i didn't want my life to end. >> emily is here with us along with nbc news medical contributor dr. natalie azar. wow, emily. watching your story, did you have any idea what was happening to you while this was going on? >> i had no idea at all. at age 27, the last thing you think of. there were some bystanders nearby who recognized signs and symptoms which i didn't know i was having. took me to a medical tent and a physician assessed my symptoms and said "i'm going to raise your arms in front of you and
when i let go keep them both raised." and my left arm fell and that was the minute i knew something was wrong. it was terrifying. >> talk about your road to recovery. you're running again but talk about how you got healthy again. >> i went from living independently as a 27-year-old to moving in with my parents and spending most of the days on -- sleeping on the couch going to physical and occupational therapy. about three months after my stroke i ran for the first time on a treadmill. about half the pace i normally used to but ran for a mile and then worked up to running a half marathon 11 months after my stroke. >> dr. azar, the first thing you think of when you look at emily, how does a young girl get an a stroke? >> the reasons for younger people do differ and the reasons in older people. in older people it's uncontrolled hypertension, diabetes, cholesterol issues. in the younger population, the etiology is different. there can be cardiogenic causes.
structural problems in the heart, use of birth control, smoking is still a risk factor in younger people, of course. migraine. and another thing called a dissection which is when part of the artery wall splits and blood can get in there, it can form a clot and dislodge. that's one of the main causes actually of stroke in younger people. >> did you ever find out why or what happened? >> so i had what's called a cryptogenic stroke. i've seen three different neurology teams in three different states and none have come to an agreement on exactly what happened. there are a few different things being thrown out there but -- >> when you think about being 27, i'm 35, i would never think about this. what are warning signs for people watching? >> so the simple, simple acronym to remember is something called fast. we'll put it up on the screen. fast stands for if you see somebody's face is drooping or your notice your face is droop, immediate. the arm thing emily mentioned, you can do it to yourself, raise
both arms, if one of them falls you could be having a stroke. speech for s, slurred speech, and time. i cannot emphasize this enough. in order for the clot buster drugs to be given, they have to be given within three hours of symptom onset otherwise the risk cans outweigh the benefit. >> that was difficult for you. in your opinion the hospital and they were like do you want this drug and the drug could have adverse effects, too, right? >> exactly. so i received the drug two hours after the onset of my stroke symptoms and, you know, largely credit my being here today with receiving this drug and people got me care. >> so now is it a second lease? >> i'm definitely living a second life. i went from running races to raise money for stroke awareness to becoming a spokeswoman for go red for women and now i work for the american heart association. >> good girl! thanks emily and natalie. coming up, bobbie thomas gives a surprise to a woman and
