Stroke: It Happens in an Instant

Stroke: It Happens in an Instant

A stroke is an emergency – it can happen to anyone, at any time, and at any age. What happens when someone experiences a stroke and what occurs on the way to and at the hospital, is the focus of the 2018 National Stroke Awareness Month video. Save a life by having a better understanding of stroke and by knowing what signs and symptoms to look for.

    I had a stroke 18 months ago and had none of these signs. I got dizzy and collapsed on a sidewalk. I had an arterial dissection which lead to the blood clot.

    One, two or all 3 classic FAST stroke signs CAN be absent during a stroke. Some people may have other symptoms including a sudden severe headache, extreme dizziness, sudden blurring of vision, difficulty finding the right words, usually sudden confusion, sudden loss of consciousness, blackouts or even feeling or being sick
