According to the latest statistics, the medical experts say that strokes are a leading cause of adult disability and the fourth leading cause of death in the U.S. It is a “brain attack” that occurs when blood flow to a part of brain is interrupted. In this article we are going to talk about strokes, the most common warning signs and how to protect yourself. First, you should know that there are 2 major types of strokes: ischemic and hemorrhagic. Ischemic strokes are more common and are caused by a narrowing or blocking of arteries to the brain, resulting in severely reduced blood flow. Hemorrhagic strokes are less common and are caused by bleeding in the brain. 

Note: you should know that it’s extremely important to identify the warning signs of a stroke and get medical help as soon as possible to reduce the risk of serious damage to the brain. This can help lower the risk of death or disability and improve your chances of recovery. The medical experts say that the signs and symptoms may vary from one person to another depending on the type of stroke, the part of the brain affected and the extent of damage. But they all tend to begin suddenly.
The most common warning signs of a stroke are:
  • Numbness in your arm, leg or face, especially on one side of the body
  • Trouble walking, loss of balance or coordination
  • Trouble speaking and understanding others who are speaking
In order to recognize the beginning of a stroke, you need to learn the F.A.S.T. acronym, and here is its meaning:
  1. Face: You should examine whether a side of the face sags, and ask the patient to smile.
  2. Arms: Ask the patient to lift the arms and see whether one of them drifts downward.
  3. Speech: Ask the patient to replicate a fundamental phrase and check if the speech is odd or slurry
  4. Time: Every single minute is of crucial importance, so you should call an ambulance as soon as possible.
You need to remember that the warning signs occur fast and start suddenly, so you should not wait a second for the condition to improve or worsen as soon as you experience some of the symptoms, and immediately seek a clinical assistance.
It would be best to call an ambulance instead of driving to the hospital, as medical employees will start the procedure of saving the life on the way to the hospital.
Moreover, even if you experience these symptoms and they vanish after a few minutes, you should visit your doctor as those short episodes are known as transient ischemic assaults (TIAs) and may increase the risk of a full stroke soon.
Sometimes, people may confuse the symptoms of stroke and migraine, so this is how to differentiate them:
  • The warning signs of strokes occur suddenly, while in the case of a migraine, the signs occur gradually and spread.
  • Sometimes, the symptoms of a migraine are positive in the form of added stimuli, like viewing flashing lights or zigzag forms. In contrast, TIA signs normally start with unpleasant symptoms, like hearing loss, loss of vision, and loss of limb power.
Strokes can occur regardless of the time or age, but these risk factors elevate the chances:
  • Age 55 or older
  • High blood pressure
  • Smoking
  • Diabetes
  • Other conditions like heart disease, atrial fibrillation and blood disorders
  • Migraines with aura, or visual disturbances
  • Family history
So, in order to prevent or delay a stroke, it’s extremely important to control the risk factors. And, you should eat a healthy diet rich in a variety of fruits, vegetables and whole grains, get regular exercise and maintain a healthy weight.
