First way, that you are about ti have a stroke is the flow of oxygen-rich blood to the brain is blocked, or partially blocked,and second way is if you have a bleading in your brain.In both ways brain cells are starting to die and they are leaving permanent damage.If brain cells are dead or damaged symptoms in the area those brain cells control can start developing.How to know if the brain cells are dead or damaged?
Symptoms: sudden weakness; paralysis or numbness in the face, arms or legs; trouble speaking or understanding speech; and blurred vision. A stroke can cause lasting brain damage, long-term disability, or even death.If you are having some of this symptoms go to a doctor immediately.Early detection will reduce the risk of permanent disability.
There is just two type of stroke.Ischemic is a first type and also most common.In an ischemic stroke, blood supply to part of the brain is decreased, leading to dysfunction of the brain tissue in that area.These blockages can be caused becouse of the blood clot.We need to be aware of a Transient Ischemic Attack (TIA also known as a “mini-stroke”).If blood flow is blocked in a short period of only one part of the brain , it can lead to stroke.TIAs can be caused by blood clots.
Hemorrhagic is a second type of stroke.If in any case happens that artery in the brain ruptures or leaks blood a hemorrhagic stroke can occur.Most of the hemorrhagic stroke syndromes have specific symptoms particularly headaches, or have evidence of a previous head injury.Aneurysms and high blood pressure are the most common causes of hemorrhagic.
Signs and symptoms are: sudden weakness,vision problems. You may experience blurred vision, blackened vision or double vision,loss of consciousness,paralysis or numbness on the face, arms or legs (especially if it is only on one side of the body). You may experience that one side of your face feels droopy and is difficult to smile or when you raise your arms you are unable to keep both raised,trouble speaking or understanding speech. You may experience slurring of words or confusion.
In a big risk are people: people with diabetes,people with high blood pressure,people with, or a family history of, heart disease,smokers,the older you are the more likely you are to have a stroke,people who have already experienced a stroke or TIA,family history of stroke or TIA,obese people…
It’s very important to treat stroke immediately. If you or someone you know have this symptoms go to the doctor right now.Stroke is not a joke it’s very dangerous it can lead to permanent brain damage and disability.
