Stroke symptoms may seem like just minor annoyances to some. And, for many people they are. But, if you have been recently diagnosed with a stroke, you probably don’t realize that each of these symptoms is telling you that there is something very wrong. Left untreated, they can worsen your condition and even lead to death. Here are some signs that you may be experiencing a stroke or are close to one.
The first sign to look for is weakness or numbness on one side of your body. Weakness or numbness on either side of your body is an immediate warning sign of a possible stroke symptom. Numbness or loss of sensation on one side of your body is also a very common symptom of acute stroke treatment.
Another sign to watch for is sudden vision loss or a blurred or double vision. Sudden vision loss is usually a symptom of a few other things going on as well. If you have confusion, a problem with balance, difficulty walking, or trouble talking, all of these things could be leading up to or suggesting a stroke symptom.
Another warning sign is leg weakness or limpness. A person that has had a stroke will generally be unable to move around much. They may also appear to shuffle or stumble as they walk. This is especially apparent if they have already had some type of injury. Leg weakness may cause them to have difficulty getting out of bed or walking after getting in. If you are experiencing difficulty moving your legs, then you may notice a slight difficulty getting in or out of bed on your own.
Numbness, or a ringing in the ears is one of the most common symptoms. It can be confused with a few other conditions as well. Ringing in the ears can often indicate CVA or cerebrovascular accident. A stroke symptom that is often confused with this is leg weakness. However, if you have confusion, a problem with balance, trouble walking, or dizziness, it is likely that you have CVA and not the ringing in the ears.
A chest feeling like you can’t breathe is also one of the first symptoms to appear when you have a stroke. The feeling can be coupled with a tightness in the chest. A tightness in the chest can mean that there is not enough air getting into the lungs. This can lead to weakness in arm movements.
Nausea or pain in the upper back near the neck is another symptom that can appear. This can be a sign that you have suffered a heart attack. It can also be caused by a problem with blood flow to the brain. If your headache or nausea lasts for more than 10 days, and if it is accompanied by weakness in the arm, dizziness, or the inability to focus or remember things, you should see your doctor. Signs of depression could also be confused with these symptoms.
A stroke happens when blood to the brain is reduced or blocked. There are some types of strokes that are more common than others. One of them is called an ischemic stroke, which occurs when there is a blood clot (ischemic), near the brain. This is called a “clot” because it results from a blood clot (ischemic) that breaks off from the inside of your brain, rather than from a rupture outside of your brain. The result is that the brain is deprived of oxygen and nutrients, and there is a stroke or hemorrhage.
Another type of stroke is called a hemorrhagic stroke, which results from a hemorrhage or “bleeding” of the brain stem. A person with hemorrhagic stroke will likely go into convulsions and loss of consciousness and may suffer mild to severe headache. You might also experience visual changes such as double vision, decreased peripheral vision, decreased contrast, and blurred vision.
The symptoms of ischemic stroke can occur in other ways as well. For example, a hemorrhage that does not form a blood clot in the brain can also result in a stroke. When a hemorrhage is present, it is called a “haemorrhagic stroke”. If the blood clot does form, it is known as a “thrombolytic stroke”.
Stroke is a leading cause of death in the United States. Each year, more people are becoming the victim of a stroke, resulting in many lives lost. It is important that you get medical attention if you have any of these signs or others of this disease. Early treatment can lead to improved survival.
