Stroke may strike at anytime and anyone. It has different manifestations depending on
what area of the brain is affected.
A stroke may manifest as sudden numbness or weakness of face, arm or leg, especially on one side of the body. It may also appear to be the onset of sudden confusion, trouble speaking or understanding. It can be evidenced by sudden trouble seeing in one or both eyes or sudden trouble walking, dizziness, loss of balance or coordination. It can also appear to be the onset of a sudden severe headache with no known cause.
