Symptoms of a Stroke

Unlike heart attacks, strokes usually cause no pain, so the warning signs often are missed by victims and people around them. Symptoms include:

_ Sudden weakness or numbness of the face, arm, leg or one side of the body.

_ Sudden dimness or loss of vision, especially in one eye.

_ Difficulty or inability to speak.

_ Sudden severe headaches.

_ Unexplained dizziness or sudden falls.
