What is a stroke?


A stroke, also known as a brain attack, occurs when blood flow to the brain stops, and the brain cells in the area begin to die. Stroke symptoms come suddenly and without warning. If you notice any of the symptoms like sudden numbness or weakness in the face, arm, or leg, especially on one side of the body, trouble speaking and walking, dizziness, loss of balance, or lack of coordination, it is time to think F.A.S.T and call the emergency number.
