Sometimes other symptoms appear, separately, in combination or with F.A.S.T. signs.
Knowing the signs and symptoms of a stroke is the first step to ensuring medical help is received immediately. For each minute a stroke goes untreated and blood flow to the brain continues to be blocked, a person loses about 1.9 million neurons. This could mean that a person’s speech, movement, memory, and so much more can be affected.
Learn as many stroke symptoms as possible so you can recognize stroke FAST and save a life!
