Symptoms of a stroke

A stroke happens when your brain isn’t getting the blood it needs. There are two main causes of stroke: a blocked artery (ischemic stroke) or leaking or bursting of a blood vessel (hemorrhagic stroke). Treatment is required right away to lower chances of permanent damage to the brain, disability, or even death. Sometimes a stroke happens gradually, but you’re likely to have one or more sudden symptoms. Below we share the most common symptoms of a stroke. Minutes matter in treating stroke so if you experience any of these symptoms it’s best to call ER24 on 084 124.
