As people age, their risk of suffering a stroke increases. But even if such an attack is generally classified as unpredictable, according to some doctors, there are a few signs that should be taken seriously in advance. In this article, you’ll learn what they are.

Stroke is a danger that increases primarily with age – in the most common type, cerebral infarction, narrowing arteries restrict the supply of oxygen and blood to the brain.

While such an attack is generally considered unpredictable, according to some doctors, a few signs can be used to recognize an impending stroke. This is now reported by the British newspaper The Sun.

Doctors point to early signs of a stroke.
According to doctors, a real stroke can be preceded by a “mini-stroke,” also known as a “transient ischemic attack.” The characteristics of such a “mini-stroke” are very similar to those of an actual stroke – with the difference that such an attack does not yet cause permanent neurological damage.

Instead, the symptoms disappear quickly, and one tends to forget about them and not attach great importance to them. Doctors advise, however, to take even such signs seriously and to call an emergency doctor, as The Sun further reports.

A quick reaction can help.
Symptoms of a “mini-stroke” include loss of balance, impaired or absent vision, hemifacial paralysis, and weakness or numbness in one or both arms.

In addition, speech may be impaired to the extent that the affected person speaks slurredly. According to doctors, a real stroke can follow in such cases within the next 48 hours or in three months at the latest. In addition, help should be sought urgently, even if only one of the above symptoms is noticeable.
