Hi Hayden,

A Spinal strokes is a disruption in the blood supply to the spine. It can cause tissue damage and can block messages traveling along the spinal cord. It is mainly caused by  blockages or blood clot. Symptoms can include weakness in the legs, pain and problems with the bowel or bladder. Hope this helps.
