On a snowy morning in 2010, Jolene Morton headed to work early, thinking she would be safer with fewer cars on the roads. Shortly after arriving, she started slurring her words while talking on the phone and then she dropped the receiver. In a flash, everything went blank. “All I saw in my head was a dark room with dust bunnies,” Morton says.

She struggled to speak as her supervisor helped her lie down on the floor. Morton, at 33, had suffered a stroke, long considered a rarity in someone so young. Ischemic strokes, which account for about 90 percent of all strokes, result when clots or fatty deposits block blood flow to the brain. Morton’s doctors never found a clot, only a narrowing in an artery that feeds brain areas critical for motor control, sensory perception and speech.

Over several months, Morton, who worked at a home-nursing agency in West Chester, Pa., slowly learned how to walk, talk and feed herself again. Today she spends afternoons in bed, exhausted from seizures and chronic pain that followed the stroke.

Strokes in younger adults typically result from rare conditions, including tears in artery walls (called dissections) or defects in the heart that release clots. Strokes in older adults usually result when a lifetime of bad habits ravages the vascular system. But strokes, long on the decline among the elderly, appear to be rising among younger adults.

About 10 percent of the nearly 800,000 strokes that Americans suffer each year occur in people younger than 50, according to recent studies.
