Knowing the early signs of a stroke can go a long way in preventing permanent damage. A stroke occurs when blood flow to part of the brain is blocked or interrupted, when brain cells are blocked from receiving oxygen and nutrients.
Although it is not always possible to predict the approach of a stroke, in some cases it can give an indication.
WHAT ARE THE WARNING SIGNS OF A BATTLE?
An early symptom of a stroke can be a severe or unusual headache. A 2020 study of 550 people confirmed that 15 percent of participants experienced such symptoms before the so-called ischemic stroke.
IT BEGINS GENERALLY 7 DAYS AGO
The study authors noted that the headaches were either severe in nature or different from previously experienced pain. Symptoms usually begin 7 days before the stroke.
The study also revealed that those who reported such unusual headaches were more likely to have atrial fibrillation.
WHAT IS AN ISCHEMIC BATTLE?
Ischemic stroke is caused by a blockage in the blood vessels supplying the brain, usually due to a blood clot. This is the most common type of the disease, as opposed to the rarer hemorrhagic stroke, which is caused by a leak or rupture of an artery.
ATTENTION TO SYMPTOMS OF PARLIAMENT LOST WITHIN ONE HOUR
Another possible warning sign of a stroke is a transient ischemic attack (TIA), which occurs when the blood supply to part of the brain is interrupted for a short time. While the symptoms of a TIA, also called a mini-stroke, can be very similar, stroke symptoms usually subside within an hour and rarely cause permanent damage.
WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF TRANSITIONAL ischemic affect (TIA)?
See a doctor immediately if you notice any of the following symptoms:
Paralysis or weakness on one side of the body, usually the face, arms, or legs
difficult speech or interpretation problems,
Loss of balance or coordination
lack of eyesight,
Studies have confirmed that after symptoms appear, stroke can be prevented in 80 percent of cases if a timely diagnosis is made and the patient receives proper treatment.
