Stroke Recovery and Treatment

April 28, 2016

Nearly 15,000,000 people around the world have a stroke every year. Recently, two major studies discovered treating patients quickly for mini-strokes could dramatically cut their risk of a major stroke. Researchers studied nearly 100,000 people with vascular disease. They found those patients treated within 24 hours of having a mini-stroke cut their chances of having a more serious stroke in the next few months by 80%! Symptoms of a mini-stroke often disappear within 24 hours, but damage to the brain is often undeciferable from that caused by a major stroke.  These symptoms are:
  • Weakness of the face, and/or arm, and/or leg muscles on one side of body
  • Numbness of face and/or arm and/or leg one side of the body
  • Inability to understand spoken language
  • Inability to speak
  • Unexplained dizziness or vertigo
  • Loss of vision through one eye
  • Double vision or blurry vision
If you think you've had a mini-stroke, call your doctor immediately.  It could save your life!
