Know the signs. Get help immediately.

It’s important to know how to recognize a stroke. These are the most common warning signs:

  • Sudden numbness or weakness of the face, arm or leg, especially on one side of the body
  • Sudden confusion, trouble speaking or understanding
  • Sudden trouble walking, dizziness, loss of balance or coordination
  • Sudden severe headache
  • Sudden trouble seeing in one or both eyes

Call 911 immediately if you notice any of the above warning signs of a stroke. Keep in mind, not all of these warning signs are seen in every attack, and some signs may come and go. Don’t wait to see if symptoms go away. The longer a stroke goes without help, the greater the risk for brain damage and potential disability.
