Stroke Warning Signs

A stroke takes place almost every 40 seconds and can be devastating. However, the earlier you can detect a stroke, the greater the chance for a positive recovery. That's why it's important for you to learn the signs of a stroke, so you can prevent permanent damage and save a life.

Stroke warning signs include:

  • Confusion or trouble understanding people
  • Dizziness
  • Loss of balance or coordination
  • Severe headaches
  • Sudden numbness or weakness in face, arm, or leg (especially on one side)
  • Trouble speaking
  • Trouble seeing (with one or both eyes)

If you or a loved one shows signs of any of these stroke symptoms, seek medical attention immediately. Every minute counts.
