Stroke symptoms may include:
Stroke symptoms start suddenly, so if you notice these symptoms developing gradually it could be a different type of neurological issue. If you suspect a stroke, fast action is essential. The faster that you receive treatment, the better. A stroke is a medical emergency, so if you or someone you love experiences the symptoms of a stroke, you should proceed to the nearest emergency room immediately.
If your stroke symptoms fade rapidly, it doesn’t mean you can forget about it and carry on as normal. You may have experienced a transient ischemic attack, sometimes called a mini-stroke, a serious condition that means you’re going to have a stroke in the future without further medical intervention. Treat temporary stroke symptoms the same way you treat lingering ones: with immediate medical attention.
Rehabilitation can begin almost as soon as you’re stabilized after the stroke. For many stroke sufferers, rehabilitation starts in the hospital, and then continues in a rehab facility and then in an outpatient setting. Starting your stroke rehabilitation promptly and being dedicated to the program ensures that you get maximum results.
Stroke rehabilitation includes a wide range of care, with common treatments including:
