Warning Signs of Stroke

    Stroke symptoms often happen suddenly, and every person’s symptoms may vary. The warning signs of stroke include:

    • Weakness or numbness of the face, arm or leg, usually on one side of the body
    • Trouble speaking or understanding
    • Problems with vision, such as dimness or loss of vision in one or both eyes
    • Dizziness or problems with balance or coordination
    • Problems with movement or walking
    • Fainting or seizure
    • Severe headaches with no known cause, especially if they happen suddenly

    Other less common symptoms of stroke may include:

    • Sudden nausea or vomiting not caused by a viral illness
    • Brief loss or change of consciousness, such as fainting, confusion, seizures or coma

    Transient ischemic attack

    Called a mini-stroke, a transient ischemic attack (TIA) can cause many of the same symptoms as a stroke. But TIA symptoms are passing. They can last for a few minutes or up to 24 hours. Always seek immediate medical help if you suspect a stroke or TIA.

    Think FAST

    The National Stroke Association’s acronym FAST can help you quickly determine whether someone is having a stroke:

    • F (Face): Ask the person to smile. Does one side of his or her face droop?
    • A (Arms): Ask the person to raise both arms. Does one arm drift downward?
    • S (Speech): Ask for a simple phrase (such as,“You can’t teach an old dog new tricks”) to be repeated. Is speech slurred or hard to understand?
    • T (Time): If you observe any of these signs, call 911 immediately.

    If you or someone else has any of these symptoms, act FAST and call 911. With stroke, time lost is brain lost.

    What happens days before a stroke?
    Sudden dizziness, loss of balance or coordination. Loss of vision or changes to your vision in one or both eyes, which usually happens suddenly. Feeling confused or having trouble understanding things that are usually easy for you. Numbness or weakness on one side of the body (or in one arm or leg) more

    Can a baby aspirin a day prevent stroke?
    That's because there's “no net benefit” when considering the associated bleeding risks, according to the prevention experts. People ages 40 to 59 who have a greater than 10% risk of having a stroke or heart attack over 10 years may get a “small net benefit” from taking a daily low-dose or baby aspirin. more
    How many days can a stroke last?
    Stroke symptoms typically last more than 24 hours, and may or may not resolve, even with therapy. Some stroke symptoms may never resolve or get better. TIA symptoms last for a short time. Symptoms can begin to resolve in about 1 to 5 minutes, which is typical, but some may take about 24 hours to resolve. more
    What happens in the first 3 days after a stroke?
    The first days in hospital. During the first few days after your stroke, you might be very tired and need to recover from the initial event. Meanwhile, your team will identify the type of stroke, where it occurred, the type and amount of damage, and the effects. They may perform more tests and blood work. more
