Stroke is the term for attack on the brain due to bad blood flow in the brain and stats say 1 of 5 people in USA dies from this. This is worldwide too. Such strokes, if survived leave people handicapped.
Those that had this had also ischemic and hemorrhagic too. The ischemic is tight brain canals and bad blood flow in them. The other is rare and made from aneurysm vessels.
You can prevent this and even save lives. Read this better.
Every stroke has similar signs, but it is always for sure unexpected.
The obvious signs
Hard time to walk and talk
No moves control

The acronym FAST to describe the steps
- Face- see the face, does it droop is it saggy?
- Arms- lift them and see if one drops
- Speech- say something and see if the speech is slurry
- Time- seek HELP!
These signs happen fast and really sudden. Ask help ASAP.
No driving to the hospital. Get medical help at home. Sometimes such signs can disappear, but you will still need help. It is called episode of TIA or transient ischemic assault and this leads to more serious stroke.
Many people never make difference between migraine and stroke, sometimes this confuses you. Stroke is sudden and migraine is in spans.
