Stroke is the fifth-leading cause of death nationwide. Brain damage from strokes can be minimized if they are treated promptly, but it’s common to mistake signs of a stroke for other health problems, which delays treatment. A stroke occurs when a blood vessel carrying oxygen and nutrients to the brain either bursts or is obstructed from a blood clot. When this happens, parts of the brain cannot receive necessary oxygen – and cells begin to die.
Around 80 percent of all strokes are preventable. As is the case with every other preventable medical condition, awareness is the key. HERE ARE POSSIBLE SIGNS OF A STROKE TO NEVER IGNORE. The list of symptoms are well organized, you should press the next button below each symptom to move to the next one.
Much like the limb weakness or numbness, vision problems are usually one-sided. But instead of losing sight in one full eye, you’re more likely to lose the same field of vision in both eyes (for example, neither eye can see to the left).
This is because the eyeball itself and the optic nerve are fine, but where that information goes to get processed in the brain is what can be damaged. Abnormal vision may also be a sign of high blood pressure. Here are symptoms of high blood pressure you should never ignore.
