Symptoms of Stroke

Imagine the day where you have decided to be the happiest person in this earth and started preparing for your works. But suddenly you get head ache and your vision gets blurred. Your speech becomes slurred and all of a sudden you lose your vision falling to the ground. You wanted to make a yell of noise calling out for help but unable to do that!! Yes. You have been attacked by stroke.

A stroke occurs when the brain cells are dead. When any brain cell does not receive blood and proper nutrients for more than 4 minutes, it may die resulting in the stroke. Brain deaths are so harmful and may even take lives. So one has to be very careful in preventing strokes. Brain cells need blood from which they intake oxygen and the respective nutrients. When there is any blockage in any of these cells, it results in poor circulation of oxygen leading to a stroke. In such cases, blood circulation has to be restored quickly. Ischemic stroke occurs due to the blockage in any of the blood vessels. Hemorrhagic Stroke occurs when the blood cells burst resulting in the death of brain cells. This occurs due to high blood pressure. Some of the symptoms of developing stroke are:

  • Dizziness
  • Head ache
  • Blurred vision
  • Slurred speech
  • Loss of balance and falling to ground

The impacts may have a short term and long lasting effects. And it heavily depends on which part of the brain is being affected and the speed with which other brain cells may substitute the work. The common and severe impact is the result of paralysis. Some may result in the problem of cognitive thinking. If the front part of brain is affected, persons will give extreme reactions and succumbed to emotional impacts. It may be hereditary for some to encounter with stroke. But normally lifestyle plays a vital role. Persons with diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease must be careful and do regular exercises to keep their body health.
