Signs And Symptoms Of Stroke In Men And Women

You must have heard about this common condition that affects both men and women and could be wondering how it occurs and what are the signs to look out for? This article describes stroke and its symptoms in both men and women.

When a blood artery in the brain ruptures and bleeds, or when the blood supply to the brain is cut off, a stroke ensues. Blood and oxygen are unable to reach the brain's tissues due to the rupture or obstruction.

Brain cells and tissue are damaged and begin to die within minutes of being deprived of oxygen. Examine the effects of a stroke on the human body.

Symptoms of a stroke

The decrease of blood supply to the brain causes harm to the brain's tissues. The body parts controlled by the damaged portions of the brain show symptoms of a stroke.

The sooner a person suffering from a stroke receives treatment, the higher their chances of recovering. As a result, knowing the symptoms of a stroke might help you act fast. Symptoms of a stroke include:


-numbness or weakness in the arm, face, or leg, often on one side of the body; difficulty speaking or understanding speech; slurred speech

-vision difficulties, such as difficulty seeing in one or both eyes, vision that is darkened or fuzzy, or double vision, difficulty walking, and loss of balance or coordination are all examples of vision problems.


-a severe, unexpected headache with no recognized cause

A stroke necessitates rapid medical assistance. If you or someone else thinks they're having a stroke, request for emergency right away. The following outcomes can be avoided with prompt treatment:

-injury to the brain

-death due to long-term disability

When dealing with a stroke, it's better to be safe than sorry, so don't be reluctant to call for emergency if you think you know the symptoms. Act quickly and learn to spot the indications of a stroke.
