Stroke is a leading cause of death and adult disability. Yet stroke is treatable when quickly recognized. Symptoms occur suddenly and may include numbness or weakness in the face, arm or leg (typically on one side of the body). Other warning signs include severe headache, dizziness, loss of balance or coordination, trouble speaking, and sudden vision changes in one or both eyes.

Treatment is usually most effective when administered as quickly as possible after symptom onset. Medical imaging such as CT scan or MR scan may be used to evaluate stroke patients. Clot-busting drugs, surgery or intracranial vascular treatments using imaging guidance can result in complete or near-complete recovery from the effects of stroke.

Remember—stroke is treatable when quickly recognized. Seek emergency medical help immediately when you see the signs.
