Even if you experience mild stroke symptoms, it is important to see immediate medical attention because the risk of a major stroke is very high in the 24 hours after a mild stroke or transient ischemic attack (TIA).
The common symptoms of mild stroke can be subtle and often people ignore these signs:
- Weakness in face, arm or leg on one side
- Numbness in face
- Inability to understand spoken language
- Inability to speak
- Blurred Vision
- Emotional Outbursts
While many people can recover well with little lasting effect from a mild stroke, for others the effects can be devastating. So it is very important to recognize when a loved one is having a stroke.
