What is a stroke?
A stroke occurs when the blood supply to the brain is interrupted, either by a sudden artery blockage preventing essential blood supply, or by a burst blood vessel, which causes bleeding in the brain’s tissue. It’s a serious and often life-threatening condition, which requires swift emergency medical treatment to limit damage and ultimately save the person’s life.

The main warning signs of a stroke can be easily remembered and understood by the acronym, B.E.F.A.S.T:

Balance: Is the person experiencing a sudden loss of balance or coordination?
Eyes: Is the person having difficulty focusing or are they experiencing double vision? Can they see clearly?
Face: Is the person able to smile fully? Is their face drooping on one side?
Arms: Can the person raise both arms or does one arm drop?
Speech: Is the person able to speak? Is their speech slurred or strange?
Time: Time is of the essence.

    Hi everyone!! The chain of lymph nodes on the right side of my neck was swollen for 2 years. From my personal experience, I discovered that it was my body’s way of communicating to me that something was out of balance.
