Health Fair - Stroke Awareness
Warning signs of a stroke:

  • Sudden numbness or weakness of the face, arm or leg, especially on one side of the body
  • Sudden confusion, trouble speaking or understanding
  • Sudden trouble seeing in one or both eyes
  • Sudden trouble walking, dizziness, loss of balance or coordination
  • Sudden severe headache with no known cause

Did You Know?

Not all of these symptoms occur with every stroke, and sometimes they go away and return. If any symptoms occur, get help fast. If you feel these warning signs or notice one or more of these symptoms in another person, call 911 immediately. Clot-busting treatment given within three hours of the start of symptoms may reduce long-term disability from the most common type of stroke.
