Stroke is the leading cause of serious, long-term disability in the United States. Each year, approximately 795,000 people suffer a stroke.
Stroke and mini-stroke symptoms may include:
A sudden, severe headache with no known cause
Dizziness or loss of balance
Inability to move one or more of your limbs
Sudden trouble seeing in one or both eyes
Sudden weakness or numbness in the face or limbs, often on just one side of the body
Trouble speaking or understanding speech
It is VERY important that even if the symptoms go away to call 9-1-1 and get to the hospital immediately.
