One of the worst things that can appear in a person because of bad flow in the brain is stroke. 1 in 5 people only in the USA die from this. If a person survives a rather difficult stroke, they can remain handicapped.
Stroke can be hemorrhagic and ischemic. The ischemic appears because of tight brain canals. The other one appears because of aneurysm vessels and is very rare.
In this article, we’re going to present you some signs of stroke as well as how to prevent it!
THE OBVIOUS SIGNS
- No control over the movements
- Numb limbs and face on one side
- Hard time walking and talking

THE ACRONYM ‘FAST’ TO DESCRIBE THE STEPS
Face– you need to be worried if the face is saggy or drooping.
Arms– Lift your arms. If one of them drops uncontrollably, you should be worried.
Speech– If the speech is slurry while you talk, it’s an obvious sign.
Time– Look for help immediately!
The symptoms can appear very suddenly. Make sure you get hospital at home. Don’t drive there! There are some signs which can disappear but make sure you get help. This can also lead to the appearance of a more serious stroke.
People are sometimes confused between stroke and migraine. Migraine is in spans and stroke appears suddenly.
Migraine usually has signs like zigzag flashes, colors, lights and patterns, while TIA appears with immobility, less vision and hearing.
It mostly appears in elderly people, but it can also appear in people of all ages.
