The 5 Early Signs Of Stroke You Should Know
Strokes occur due to problems with the blood supply to the brain; either the blood supply is blocked or a blood vessel within the brain ruptures. Read on to know about early signs of stroke.
Stroke occurs when blood flow to an area of brain is cut off.
During a stroke, blood supply to your brain stops, affecting all processes regulated by our neurons. It may happen because a blood vessel has burst or because a blood clot has formed, creating a blockage. This in turn may be fuelled by hypertension, tuberculosis or other heart diseases. Here are 5 early signs of stroke you need to watch out for.
1. Severe headache
Your head may begin to throb with pain without any reason.
2. Confusion and slurred speech
You may have trouble speaking simple sentences and understanding what the other person is saying.
3. Numbness in arms, legs and face
You arms and other body parts can become weak. Check this by trying to raise your arms.
4. Imbalance in walking
Coordination may become poor, making you unable to walk in a straight line. You can check this by trying to touch the tip of your nose with your finger.
5. Vision problems
You can experience trouble seeing with one or both of your eyes or even have double vision.
A stroke can occur at any age. Don't wait to see if you can feel better. Rush to the hospital if you feel any of these symptoms.
