Signs of stroke

Stroke is the fifth leading cause of death in America today. It’s also a major cause of severe, long-term disability. People over 55 years old have more chance of stroke, and the risk gets greater as they get older.

By knowing the signs and symptoms of stroke, you can take quick action and perhaps save a life—maybe even your own. Immediate signs of stroke including:
*Face drooping
*Arm weakness
*Speech difficulty or confusion

Other warning symptoms:
• Sudden numbness or weakness on one side of the body
• Sudden confusion or trouble understanding
• Sudden trouble seeing in one or both eyes
• Sudden trouble walking, dizziness, loss of balance or coordination
• Sudden severe headache with no known cause

A stroke occurs when a blood vessel that carries oxygen and nutrients to the brain either bursts, ruptures or is blocked by a clot. As a result, the brain cannot get the blood and oxygen it needs and pieces of the brain die.
