STROKE

Having experienced a stroke first hand with one of my family, I want to offer you a little information as a warning!

The Professionals say FAST-Face, Arms, Speech time to get help. My opinion is that this is generalised.

Our Son could lift his arms but had had a stroke!

If in any doubt call 999 immediately. The longer you leave it the more damage this will do to the brain.
I read recently that if you ask someone to stick out their tongue, and it's not straight when they do so, is the quickest way of telling whether someone has had a stroke.
Hi!

This movie about recognizing stroke is very useful.

Hi bowlingbun, thanks for this information; I have not heard this but it's useful to know.

Hi Carl_1702, thanks for posting, the more information we have the better we are at recognising these very serious, life threatening conditions.
