Understanding a Stroke
A stroke occurs when blood flow to the brain is blocked or a blood vessel within the brain bursts, resulting in damage to the affected brain tissue.
Symptoms of a stroke may include:
- Dizziness or difficulty balancing
- Vision changes, including double vision or loss of vison on one side
- Facial droop or an uneven smile
- Sudden numbness, tingling or weakness in the face, arm or leg on one side
- Difficultly speaking or understanding speech
- Sudden, unexplained headache
The acronym BE FAST may help you remember stroke signs and symptoms. If you or someone you know is experiencing new stroke symptoms, call 911 immediately. Emergency response teams are equipped to quickly provide potential stroke patients the care they need. The quicker a stroke patient receives treatment, the better their chance of recovering from the event will be.
Stroke survivors, along with their families and caregivers, are invited to join the Methodist Stroke Support Group, which is designed to provide education, encouragement, hope and understanding. This group is open to all survivors and their loved ones regardless of where care is received.
