Stroke

Disorder to the Brain

Please visit our Neurology or Neuropathy page for more details.

Stroke symptoms include:

  • SUDDEN numbness or weakness of face, arm or leg – especially on one side of the body.
  • SUDDEN confusion, trouble speaking or understanding.
  • SUDDEN trouble seeing in one or both eyes.
  • SUDDEN trouble walking, dizziness, loss of balance or coordination.
  • SUDDEN severe headache with no known cause.

NOTE THE TIME WHEN ANY SYMPTOMS FIRST APPEAR. There is an FDA-approved clot-buster medication that may reduce long-term disability for the most common type of stroke if given within three hours of the first symptom. Call 911 ASAP!
