CDC Stroke Signs    

Signs of a Stroke

The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke notes these major signs of stroke:

Sudden numbness or weakness of the face, arms or legs

Sudden confusion or trouble speaking or understanding others

Sudden trouble seeing in one or both eyes

Sudden trouble walking, dizziness, or loss of balance or coordination

Sudden severe headache with no known cause

If you think someone is having a stroke, you should call 911 immediately.

Here's a simple test recommended by the CDC: Ask three  simple questions

*Ask  the individual to SMILE.

T  *Ask  the person to TALK and SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE  (Coherently) 

(i.e. It is sunny out  today.)

R  *Ask  him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS.
