STROKE SYMPTOMS AND WARNING SIGNS...

We all should know what the symptoms of a stroke are.  We should not
ignore them.  Knowing stroke symptoms and warning signs of a stroke

are vital to ones recovery, along with immediate medical attention.

Typical signs of a stroke are speech problems, such as slurred speech.  
There could be a feeling of numbness, tingling or weakness in limbs 
or your face.  You may not be able to raise your arms, which could be 
another sign.  
If you stick your tongue out and it's crooked . . . difficultly 
with walking . . . vision problems, such as seeing double.  These are all 
possible signs of a stroke.  Don't just think they will go away.  Get 
checked out.  Time is of the essence with a stroke.  The longer you wait, 
more brain cells die . . . more complications and possibly, lifetime 
disabilities.  GET HELP!
  

I was told that my son's carotid artery had plaque around the inside
wall.  A piece broke off and shot up to his brain.  He was standing one
moment and on the ground within a split second.  Being alone and
unconscious at the time . . . it was approximately 7 hours before he
received medical help.  Did he have symptoms prior to that?  Probably
not, but we don't  know that answer for sure . . . he can't remember. 
He has a memory loss due to the stroke.  However, it has improved
greatly and I thank God for that . . .
 
It can be difficult at times to identify a stroke.  The more common
"ischemic" type stroke, can be painless.  However, the symptoms of a 
stroke can also be mistaken for a migraine headache. Is there numbness
in a limb(s) and/or speaking problems?  Get it checked out!

Call 911 . . . don't put it off, which is human nature to do.  You might
think the symptoms will disappear . . . you might think if I take a nap, I'll 
feel better when I wake up.  Isn't it safer to get help and feel a little
foolish if it's a migraine . . . then to possibly end up with paralysis and/or
unable to speak, along with a number of other potential problems such as 
the inability to read, vision problems, memory loss . . . Call 911 . . . asap!
