Parts of the body where you will notice abnormalities if you have a stroke

A stroke, also known as a cerebrovascular accident (CVA), occurs when the blood flow to the brain is disrupted, either by a blocked or burst blood vessel. This disruption prevents the brain from getting the oxygen and nutrients it needs, causing brain cells to die.

According to healthline, the symptoms of a stroke can vary depending on which part of the brain is affected, and how severe the stroke is. However, the most common symptoms of stroke include:

Sudden numbness or weakness in the face, arm, or leg, especially on one side of the body.

Sudden confusion, trouble speaking, or difficulty understanding speech.

Sudden trouble seeing in one or both eyes.

Sudden trouble walking, dizziness, loss of balance or coordination.

Sudden severe headache with no known cause.

If you or someone you know experiences any of these symptoms, it is important to seek medical attention immediately. Remember, "Time is Brain" - the longer a stroke goes untreated, the more brain cells may be damaged, leading to more severe disability or even death.
