6 Warning Signs Of A Stroke
Sudden Extreme Migraine/Headache
A sudden, unusual and severe migraine or a headache can happen due to a blockage within one of the blood vessels in your brain. If you don’t have a migraine or headache history, it is especially important to take a severe migraine seriously.
Sudden Trouble Focusing
Strokes can impair your cognitive abilities, including the ability to focus and think critically. It is due to a lack of oxygen in your brain. It can interfere with your ability to speak in full sentences and process information.
Strokes lead to a lack of balance when standing. Usually, they affect one side. You may have trouble standing and end up falling.
Strokes only affect one side of your body. Weakness and numbness in one of your arms is usually a huge warning sign of a stroke.
Sudden Issues With Vision
Strokes can only affect your vision, normally one eye only. It may become unable to focus, see properly, or end up feeling numb.
