Face- The face droops to one side
Arms- The patient may not be able to lift their arms and keep them there due to numbness or weakness
Speech- Speech is garbled, slurred, or entirely disabled
Time- Time to dial 911 immediately if one witnesses these symptoms

Yes, with immediate and proper treatment, along with careful rehabilitation, patients can make a full reovery.

Yes, common signs of a stroke are Speech difficulties
Reduced comprehension of what others are saying
Paralysis or numbness in the face, legs, or arms, often on one side of the body
Vision impairment in one or both eyes
Headache
Difficulty walking

Chronic stress has been linked to causes of stroke, hence it is important to adopt varied stress management techniques like yoga, breathing exercises, tai chi, and massage therapy.

 
A stroke occurs when blood supply to part of the brain is cut off or reduced, which prevents oxygen and nutrients from reaching the brain. Within minutes brain cells will die, which in many cases be fatal.

Symptoms of a stroke include:
Speech difficulties
Reduced comprehension of what others are saying
Paralysis or numbness in the face, legs, or arms, often on one side of the body
Vision impairment in one or both eyes
Headache
Difficulty walking

If someone suspects they are witnessing a person who has had a stroke, the acronym FAST should be used to confirm:
Face- The face droops to one side
Arms- The patient may not be able to lift their arms and keep them there due to numbness or weakness
Speech- Speech is garbled, slurred, or entirely disabled
Time- Time to dial 911 immediately if one witnesses these symptoms

There are 3 types of stroke:
Ischemic stroke—Here, the blood vessels of the brain become narrowed or blocked, causing severely reduced blood flow (ischemia). This can happen due to debris, blood clots, or fatty deposits in the arteries.
Haemorrhagic stroke—This is also called brain haemorrhage. It occurs when a blood vessel in the brain ruptures or leaks.
TIA (Transient Ischemic Attack)—This is also called a mini stroke and is caused by a temporary interruption or decrease in blood flow to the brain. It lasts only about 5 minutes but is still considered a serious problem.

Common stroke causes include:
High BMI or obesity
Heavy or binge drinking
Sedentary lifestyle
Use of drugs like cocaine and methamphetamine
Smoking
Diabetes
High cholesterol
High blood pressure
Other cardiovascular diseases
Family history
Obstructive sleep apnea
COVID-19 infection

Stroke recovery involves the following treatment options:
Emergency IV medication
Emergency endovascular procedures (Medications which are delivered directly to the brain, or by removing the clot with a stent retriever)
Carotid endarterectomy
Angioplasty and stents

Patients who experience a stroke will be required to go through a rehabilitation process in order to prevent recurring attacks and ensure a lasting recovery.
