A stroke occurs when blood flow to the brain is disrupted, causing oxygen and blood supply to be compromised and brain cells die within minutes, resulting in a medical emergency.
Symptoms: the most common symptoms include: headache, numbness or tingling, paralysis (on one side of the body), loss of coordination, trouble with speaking or comprehension and loss of balance.
Cause: Ischemic stroke is an obstruction in a blood vessel supplying blood to the brain. Hemorrhagic stroke is a burst vessel causing leakage into the surrounding brain.
