A stroke of bad luck? Not really

Vikram Huded, neurologist and stroke specialist in Narayana Hrudayalaya, explained that warning signs include sudden numbness or weakness of face, arm or leg, especially on one side of the body; sudden confusion, difficulty in speaking or understanding; sudden blurred vision in one or both eyes; sudden difficulty in walking, dizziness and loss of balance or coordination.
In certain cases, there could be sudden severe headache also, he said.
“Other danger signs that may occur include double vision, drowsiness, nausea or vomiting. Sometimes the warning signs may last only for a few moments and then disappear,” Dr. Huded said.
