This article is about knowing the early warning signs of stroke and how to deal with it. 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, While the Hemorrhagic strokes are less common and are caused by bleeding in the brain.
Stroke is a disease that affects the arteries leading to and within the brain. It occurs when a blood vessel that carries oxygen and nutrients to the brain is either blocked by a clot or bursts (or ruptures). When that happens, part of the brain cannot get the blood (and oxygen) it needs, this causes the brain cells to die.
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.
Common Symptons of Stroke;
– Lightheadedness or weakness
– Breathing problems
– Epileptic attacks
– Personality changes.
When you notice these symptoms and warning signs of a stroke, immediately seek medical help so as to reduce the risk of serious damage to the brain.
