What are the symptoms and treatment of stroke?

In 2009 I was hospilized because I could not breathe. I was given anti virals, steriods antibiotics and codin and almost died. Then after getting out of the hospital I could not talk for 8 weeks and finally went to the hospital and was almost in liver failure from the drugs. I am a non drinker and never take OTC drugs not even asprin. I have not had a cold until now 6/2011 and refuse to take meds or go to the doctor but I am coughing so bad and coughfed and feel I did so so hard that my brain was bleeding. I think I am fine right now but I feel mellow and my neck in the back is a bit stiff. Could this be a stroke?

No I see no reason to suspect a stroke in your case. Most common symptoms of stroke are headache, vomiting, weakness of the face and limbs on one side of your body, loss of balance, difficulty speaking. There are many other symptoms, of course not all in the same patient, they vary according to the affected area of the brain. Nothing in you history suggests a stroke though.
