These stroke symptoms usually strike suddenly:
- Numbness, weakness, or paralysis of the face, arm, or leg
- Difficulty speaking or understanding speech
- Blurred, decreased, or double vision
- Dizziness, loss of balance, loss of coordination
- Severe headache, especially if accompanied by a stiff neck, facial pain, or pain between the eyes
The only possible warning sign that stroke might be coming is a transient ischemic attack (TIA), in which the patient experiences some of the early effects of a stroke for up to an hour. As one in three people who suffer a TIA eventually have a stroke, it is crucial to see a doctor as soon as possible after a TIA.
There are two types of stroke: in one case the brain suddenly receives too little blood (an ischemic stroke) and in the other it receives too much (hemorrhagic). About 80% are ischemic, caused by clots or other particles blocking arteries that supply blood to the brain. As brain cells are deprived of oxygen and nutrients, they may begin to die within minutes.
Because of the damage it can do throughout the body, a Stroke can severely weaken or even disable entire areas of the body. Hand and wrist function are often lost or diminished, usually on one side of the body, and the resulting change in lifestyle can be devastating: The patient suddenly may need assistance just to eat, groom, dress, bathe, work, or enjoy leisure activities.

The best defense against a stroke is a healthy lifestyle, involving many familiar pieces of advice:
- Lower your blood pressure
- Reduce your cholesterol and saturated fat intake
- Quit smoking
- Control your diabetes
- Stay at a healthy weight
- Exercise regularly
- Manage your stress
- Eat healthy, drink alcohol only moderately
When a stroke hits, the “right” stroke treatment depends on which type of stroke it is (ischemic or hemorrhagic) and other factors. Clot-busting medications and surgery are the most common treatments. Once a patient has recovered from the stroke, it is important for him/her to follow the doctor’s instructions to minimize the chance of another stroke.
