How to Spot a Stroke
When your brain’s blood supply is interrupted, there’s zero time to waste. That’s why the American Stroke Association came up with FAST, an acronym for the telltale signs, so you can recognize them right away.
F– Face Drooping. When you smile is it lopsided or uneven?
A– Arm Weakness. Hold your arms out or above your head, does one arm drift down?
S– Speech. Is your speech slurred: Are you having a hard time saying simple phrases correctly? Are you unable to speak?
T– Time to call 911
Other signs may be sudden loss of balance, numbness, confusion, trouble seeing in one or both eyes, and sudden severe headache.
