Five Sudden Stroke Symptoms

Last updated 4 years ago

The quicker you can recognize a stroke, the sooner you can receive life-saving treatment. This video reviews five common warning signs of stroke.

The first stroke symptom is sudden vision loss. Head pain is another warning sign, as a severe headache with no known cause could indicate a blood vessel blockage or rupture in the brain. A third symptom is limb numbness. Because strokes can cause limb dysfunction, you might also find it difficult to walk when experiencing a stroke. The last of the five major stroke symptoms is speech difficulties. If you cannot speak or understand those around you, get emergency care as soon as possible.
