May is National Stroke Awareness Month and we are helping the American Stroke Association spread the word on how to spot a stroke and when to get help. Spread the word to your family and friends.
During the COVID-19 pandemic getting medical attention can sometimes be tricky, but for someone suffering from symptoms of a stroke time is of the essence so medical attention must be sought as soon as possible.
If you or a loved one is experiencing any of the following symptoms you will want to seek medical attention immediately.
- Face drooping.
- Arm weakness
- Slurred speech
- Sudden numbness, confusion, trouble seeing
These are tell-tale signs that someone is having a stroke and you should call 911 immediately. In the occurrence of a stroke minutes and even seconds can make the difference between full recovery and a lifelong health issue. Don’t delay and contact 911 immediately.
