Wind Stroke (Liver)

Pre-stroke symptoms - numbing headaches, dizziness, limb numbness

Any stress on the neck through an accident or exercise may trigger stroke.

TCM - Liver, Heart, Kidney. Wind, Phlegm, Fire, can cause a disharmony of Yin and Yang, poor regulation of Qi and Blood, and Shen can't control the body Qi. Either meridians get invaded, or the organs get effected.
