(WFSB) – Doctors are worried that a COVID infection could increase the risk of a stroke later on.

Experts are particularly worried about an increased risk for younger people.

A local woman ignored the warning signs because she thought she was too young to have a stroke, so now she’s urging everyone to know the signs and be vigilant.

Walking on her own is a big step for Sharon Moye-Johnson. That’s because the Wallingford woman had a stroke in October after having a headache for four days. She woke up one morning and couldn’t walk.
