Stroke or CVA: symptoms, causes and treatment

  1. Stroke symptoms include crooked mouth, confused speech and lame arm. Recognize the Symptoms of a Stroke! The sooner treatment and rehabilitation start after a stroke, the greater the chance that someone will recover from a stroke. In a stroke, a blood vessel in the brain is closed for a long time. In a cerebral infarction, a blood vessel becomes blocked by a blood clot. Part of the brain then receives no or too little blood. This leads to damage or death of brain cells. The following symptoms indicate a stroke: a crooked face; loss of one or more limbs or loss of strength in an arm or leg (right or left); having difficulty in coming to terms with words or difficulty speaking; a coordination or balance disorder. About a quarter of all people who have had a stroke had experienced short-term failure symptoms, a so-called TIA, prior to the stroke.
