I had a stroke in 7/1995.. second in 1/1996. After ab angiogram was done,The doctors discovered that my carotid arteries are in the back of my neck, instead of the front. I was informed that it was a birthdefect.
Plus they would not promise that I would recover ( Being a single parent, I have no choice but to do so,it is 2012 and I am still here) I have partial usage of my left hand and weakness in my left leg
How common is this birthdefect? No one seems to have an answer to this question
