There are many signs to a stroke that people need to be aware of and need to pay attention to. If you start going blind or have weird fellings in your face or body that aren't normal that could be a sign of a stroke. Strokes happen when your brain doesn't get enough blood and it dies.
# Clogged vessel or ischemic stroke: Caused by blockage of a blood vessel in the brain, usually by a blood clot or by fatty deposits on the vessel wall. 85% of strokes are ischemic. # Burst vessel or hemorrhagic stroke: Caused by a ruptured blood vessel, preventing normal flow and allowing blood to leak into brain tissue, destroying it. This occurs in 15% of strokes.
If you are felling like your balance is off or your are talking funny like you have a slur or your face is droopy that is a sign of a stroke as well. Also is your vission is really bad or you have a very severe heard headache.
WALK (Is your balance off?) TALK (Is your speech slurred or face droopy?) REACH (Is your vision all or partly lost?) FEEL (Is your headache severe?)
