Stroke from work comp meds
In 2006 I was hurt on the job in an equipment malfunction accident in Tulsa, OK. I have had three surgeries and countless procedures in attempts to a recovery.
I was on 11 different medications 5 of which had "stroke warnings" while under the care of a work comp doctors.
After five years of this care I had a "Stroke" presumable from over medication
There is no family history of any heart-attack or stroke condition "not one" on either side.
I can not be the only person this has happen to.
Any help or direction is mush appreciated.
Do you have a lawyer? You need one I am also from Okla and the work comp rules are no longer in the IW favor
........I love cats, I just cant eat a whole one by myself......

I'm not sure of your question.
you should seek medical attention and follow your doctor's recommendations.
there is much information on-line about stokes and treatment.
as far as workers compensation coverage goes there is no "presumption" of coverage. you'll have to prove any connection through medical evidence.
Reminder :
........Each state has their own comp system; POST YOUR STATE to get accurate information. Use the search feature to find information from similar questions.
If your asking if this is cover by WC as 1171 said you will need medical evidence to show that it is and a good lawyer to help you. WC is going to not want to pay for anything they can get out of and medical proof is the only thing that will help
