I am sharing the knowledge I heard on Doctor Oz Show...early warning signs of a stroke. Each of these very young women had a stroke and are fine now because they knew the warning signs and acted quickly.
Face Drooping, one side different, can you smile and both sides to up
Arm weakness.. raise both arms out straight in front of you, are they level
Speech. can you repeat a short sentence, is speech garbled
Time is of the essence.. call 911 if any of the above is present and be sure to tell EMS you think you are having a stroke.
First in line.. office worker friend noticed she was laughing and one side did not go up and said something is wrong with your face. she was having a stroke at work. Saved by the office worker.
2nd in line....holding a glass and it was to heavy to lift, told hubby can't lift the glass.. dropped it. Did the arms straight out and could not do it. Life saved.
3rd in line... she thought she was talking ok, friend noticed speech was garbled.
