Dr. Robert White describes that stroke symptoms in the brain, including numbness, tingling sensations and weakness, are often painless. They should not be ignored however, as time is often the most important factor in treating a stroke. If you have stroke symtoms, call 911 and the rescue squad immediately. Dr. White is part of Neurological Associates at HCA Virginia’s Johnston-Willis Hospital in Richmond, VA: http://cjwmedical.com . HCA Virginia’s HealthBreak – Putting You First.
