Warning Signs of a Stroke

As discussed more extensively in the links below, the warnings signs of stroke include:

  • Sudden onset of facial drooping (particularly on one of the face side);
  • Sudden onset of numbness and/or weakness of one side of the body (particularly involving an arm);
  • Sudden onset of difficulty speaking (slurred speech, inability to find words, confusion);
  • Sudden onset of vision problems (e.g., blindness, double vision)
  • Sudden onset of dizziness, trouble walking, loss of balance, lack of coordination; and/or.
  • Sudden onset of a severe headache, with no known cause.

If you or someone with you exhibits one or more of these warning signs of stroke, call 911 and have that person taken to a Stroke Center immediately. Stroke is a medical emergency. Time lost is brain lost. Every known treatment of stroke is more effective the earlier it is started.
The warning signs of stroke can come and go rapidly. If the symptoms go away quickly, they might have been caused by a “Warning Stroke” (i.e., a Transient Ischemic Attack). Just because the symptoms go away does not mean that the danger of stroke has gone away too. A significant percentage of full blown strokes occur within 48 hours after a Warning Stroke. There are treatments that may prevent a full blown stroke if the warning signs are fully investigated right away.
