no. you are 14

little kids do not have strokes.

I have 32 characters 2 work with
If you had a stroke wouldn't you be dead or in the hospital? Come on. Seriously.

The flashing lights could have caused a seizure..

you could have been dehydrated. Playing rockband can be pretty intense, it doesn't sound like a stroke because kids don't normally get them. If you're obese your chances are higher, tell your parents and ask a doctor.

You need to get checked by a doctor right away. It could be high blood sugar you can be diabetic. diabetes can lead into a stroke. Have your blood sugar checked. Also check to see if you have high blood pressure. I ratter see you safe and healthy! hope this helps?

I think you prob. passed out. You could possibly be de-hydrated. I'm not a doctor, so I can't give you the anwser, but if any advice, it always makes me feel better to go to a doctor and get their word.

doubt its a stroke at your age

im not so sure it was a stroke,probably not...unless you've had problems like that b4.if not, im sure it was just getting immensley dehidrated or like you said,blood loss to brain.im not a doctor, im just giving suggestions,so if you want a pro opinion,see a doctor.

maybe TIA, transient ischemic attack, a mini stroke. A full stroke your speech would have been slurred, vision blurred in one eye and numbness and tinkling. Dehydration, no meals or you just fainted

I'm 14 too. I get that a lot! It is from not getting enough sleep or just getting up too fast. Don't worry about it! I've actually fallen over from it.

calm down i dont think you had a stroke, but i think you should see your primary doctor and consider rittlin.

Er. You wouldn't be here right now if you had a stroke...

Relax, you're fine. You probably bumped your occipital lobe or something. Did you hit your head any time recently?

Chad B
No, you did not have a stroke. My mother in law had a stroke and couldn't walk, talk, pee on her own, eat on her own, read or anything for a year. She was in a physical rehab center. You would not be on the computer typing if you had a stroke.

I state repeatedly that this is a potentially dangerous forum in which to seek medical advice. You did not experience a stroke - although despite what some people who answered have said it is possible to have a stroke at age 14 - nor did you experience an interruption of blood flow to the brain. What you are describing is a disequilibrium referred to as vertigo. There are many potential causes of vertigo and it may have been related to your playing the video game although dehydration does not sound like a possibility. If this never happens again then there is no cause for concern. If this does happen again you should visit your physician - not because vertigo is a life-threatening condition - but because it can cause you to fall over and you may suffer an injury as a result. Of course you should discuss this with your parents and let them make the final decision on whether to see your physician now or wait to see if you experience vertigo again. I wish you the very best of health and may God Bless.

The famous star Selvester Stalone had a stroke around I think of the age of 12 just so you know.

You should definately talk to Doctor about it.
Plus, there have been some games like that girl said that have been recalled because of flashing lights coming from the game that is played have caused seizures.

you could have epilepsy or it could have been a seizure since some people can get affected by video games and get seizures. contact your doctor for real advice and not from here!
