Stroke is mainly caused by the improper blood flow in the brain. Because of this, it is considered as the leading cause of death and disability in the world.
There are two types of stroke, namely, ischemic which is caused by a blockage in the arteries leading to the brain, and hemorrhagic, which is caused by a reduced blood flow.
Studies say that stroke occurs when a blood vessel that carries oxygen and nutrients to the brain is blocked by a clot.
When a person recovers from a stroke, the brain has already been permanently damaged, causing malfunction to other parts of the body.
Below are the early symptoms of stroke that we should all be aware of:
– Personality changes
– Epileptic attacks
