Today, a coworker saw my stroke magnet on my file cabinet and was asking about the signs of a stroke and what to do if someone she knows is experiencing the same symptoms. Many people have been asking me a lot lately about symptoms and how they should proceed when faced with an injury like that and I can't stress enough how important it is to call your doctor or 911 as soon as this happens.
Remember, the time between a moment and a minute can make all the difference in how severe your injury will be. Never ever think that it can't happen to you just because you're young or healthy. You can still stroke out just like anyone else. Did you know even children have strokes? Crazy! The brain is such an unchartered territory in terms of research and we are just now learning more about it.
