Symptoms of a Brain Attack
Warnings signals of
- Chest pain.
- (TIAs) are warning signs of a stroke.
TIAs are mini-ischemic strokes, usually
caused by tiny Emboli (often formed of pieces of calcium fatty
plaque) that lodge in an artery to the brain. They typically break
up quickly and dissolve but they do temporarily block the supply
of blood to the brain. The mental and physical disturbances
generally clear up in less than a day because blood supply is
quickly restored to the brain.
- Frequent migraines or severe headache (if
you are a migraine sufferer, get advice from your doctor on how to
learn to distinguish the difference between your usual headaches
and symptoms of a stroke.)

- Tingling or numbness in the mouth, cheeks,
- Nausea and vomiting.
- Difficulty swallowing.
- Inability to speak clearly.
- Weakness in the arms and legs, sometimes
causing sudden fall.
- Seizure can occur within seconds of a
blockage of a brain artery depending on how the blood clot gets to
the brain, depends on the matter of time you have before the
stroke. (If the clot traveled to an artery in the brain the
onset is sudden.) If the clot formed within the brain the
onset occurs gradually. (Can take days.).
- The blood clot usually affects the opposite
side of the body from it�s location in the brain, with possible
loss of feeling on one side of the face, in an arm or leg, or
blindness in one eye.
