Stroke

Signs and Symptoms:                                                                
• Sudden numbness or weakness of face, arm or leg, especially on one side of the body
• Sudden confusion, trouble speaking or 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

Other important but less common symptoms include:
• Sudden nausea, and vomiting - different from a viral illness because of how fast it begins (minutes or hours vs. several days)
• Brief loss of consciousness or a period of decreased consciousness (fainting, confusion, convulsions or coma)

 

Women may report unique stroke symptoms:

  • sudden face and limb pain

  • sudden hiccups

  • sudden nausea

  • sudden general weakness

  • sudden chest pain

  • sudden shortness of breath

  • sudden palpitations


If you have any of these symptoms or see them in someone else, call 911!  Treatment can be more effective if given quickly.

Every minute counts!
