    I wouldn't say I rest for 10-15 minutes, but I definitely get up every now and then to do stuff, more often than once every hour.

    Yeah sure, but not every hour. 1 hour of straight gaming is really short for anyone who has practiced more than 5 hours of straight gaming headache-free.

    I would take a break every hour if I was playing Warsow, though. D:

    Nope, just a seizure warning. Nothing about being a couch potato.

    I think the big risk of sitting for hours is a blood clot. There have definitely been a few video game related deaths from people playing for like 16 hours straight.

    that's fucked up man.

    I would rather be hit by a massive heart attack that kills me before I have too long to think about it than have any kind of stroke. a stroke that leaves you totally conscious while scrambling half your brain has gotta' be some scary shit.

    ugh. now I'm scared to think about it.
    I hope you recover fully. it's also fucked up that it happened to you so young.

    usually when a stroke happens to a young person it's because of heavy drug use.
    in your case I'm going to assume that you lead a sedentary lifestyle; meaning you probably don't engage in intense physical activity for at least 30 mins a day or a couple hours a week.

    sedentary lifestyle is the leading cause of all PREVENTABLE ailments.
    strokes, clots, pulmonary congestion, heart disease, etc.

    people spend way too much time in front of the TV/computer to the extent that they forget to engage in even the least amount of physical exertion.

    That's crazy. Hope you get to feeling better soon. I know the symptoms very well and the way you described it was chilling.

    I gotta know though... did you think to save your game? :)

    Ah that sucks, sounds like your typical case though.

    Be glad that something more fucked up didn't happen like losing memory of your family and childhood and how to speak and think and all that. I saw some story where that happened to some person, that must suck and completely ruin someones life. :(

    Yours seems to be purely movement I guess?

    I was wondering where the hell you were on LoL though, I sent a friends request on NA server but never got anything back. How long ago did this happen? >.>

    Damn! Hang in there man. Really lay into the physical therapy. Movement stuff you can get back easier than other problems. You are fairly young, so in theory you should be able to bounce back.

    Some times.
    When people get stressed.
    A supper power will emerge.
    Have you noticed if your farts can now melt through walls of steel?
    Can you look at a female, and tell what color under pants she has on?
    Can you grow your pubes really long, and entangle your enemy with them?
    Can you raise your arm, and kill people with a spray of under arm juice?


    I really like the last one :lol:
