Strokes or strokes are becoming more and more common in our society in relation to our lifestyles. They occur when the blood supply to part of your brain is cut off or restricted.
This phenomenon blocks the oxygen and nutrients that your brain part needs. Then, within minutes or even seconds, brain cells can break down.
Fortunately, your body sends you some signals, a month in advance. These signals are 10 in number, subdivided into two parts: important symptoms and rare symptoms.
– Paralysis or numbness of the face, arms or legs. Usually only one side is affected. If this happens to you, you should try to lift both your arms above your head at the same time. If one of your arms falls off and you can’t control it, it’s a potential sign of a stroke.
– You can no longer speak and feel some confusion in your thoughts. Your words become incoherent.
– Vision that becomes cloudy or black in one or both eyes.
– You have difficulty walking. Indeed, you suddenly feel dizzy, a loss of balance or coordination.
– A sudden and very intense headache accompanied by dizziness may be the start of a stroke.
– Sudden nausea and vomiting for no reason.
– Fainting, confusion or convulsions.
– An interminable hiccup.
– Pain that you do not understand, localized to your face and some of your limbs.
– Shortness of breath and sudden chest pain.
What to do with these symptoms?
If you find yourself with someone who has these symptoms, ask them to smile and see if one side of their face droops. Then do the exercise of both arms and see which one falls. Finally, ask him to say a few easy words. You will see very quickly if his words are confused.
