Signs and symptoms of a stroke Following are the most common symptoms of stroke. Each individual, however, may experience symptoms differently. If any of these symptoms are present, call 911 (or your local ambulance service) immediately. Treatment is most effective when started immediately. Symptoms may be sudden and include: • Weakness or numbness of the face, arm or leg, especially on one side of the body • Confusion or difficulty speaking or understanding • Problems with vision such as dimness or loss of vision in one or both eyes • Dizziness or problems with balance or coordination • Problems with movement or walking • Severe headaches with no other known cause All of the above warning signs may not occur with each stroke.

Always consult your healthcare provider for a diagnosis. Other, less common, symptoms of stroke may include the following: • Sudden nausea, vomiting or fever not caused by a viral illness • Brief loss or change of consciousness such as fainting, confusion, seizures or coma 9
