A stroke (sometimes called a cerebrovascular accident (CVA)) is the rapidly developing loss of brain function(s) due to disturbance in the blood supply to the brain. This can be due to ischemia (lack of blood flow) caused by blockage (thrombosis or arterial embolism) or due to a hemorrhage (leakage of blood). As a result, the affected area of the brain is unable to function, leading to inability to move one or more limbs on one side of the body, inability to understand or formulate speech, or inability to see one side of the visual field. A stroke is a medical emergency and can cause permanent neurological damage, complications, and death. It is the leading cause of adult disability in the United States and Europe and it is the number two cause of death worldwide. Risk factors for stroke include advanced age, hypertension (high blood pressure), previous stroke or transient ischemic attack (TIA), diabetes, high cholesterol, cigarette smoking and atrial fibrillation.[4] High blood pressure is the most important modifiable risk factor of stroke. A stroke is occasionally treated with thrombolysis ("clot buster"), in a "stroke unit". Secondary prevention may involve antiplatelet drugs (aspirin and often dipyridamole), blood pressure control, statins, and in selected patients with carotid endarterectomy and anticoagulation. Treatment to recover lost function is stroke rehabilitation, involving health professions such as speech and language therapy, physical therapy and occupational therapy.

  1. Earlier today my face felt numb and was shaking,my head locked up, my eyes
    turned red, I lost sight and hearing but only for like 2 minutes. It felt
    like someone was squeezing my head! The outcome? A sore right rist, sore
    left knee cap, and a numb upper lip. I didn’t go to the hospital but I plan
    on it. I’m 6ft1 225lbs, kinda chubby with high blood pressure. I’m fine
    now, I wonder if that was a mild stroke! I’m scared
