Neurologist Diana Green during her career saw many cases of women who had stroke with a fatal outcome, many of which could have been avoided. Therefore she decided to reveal the symptoms of which you could have never assumed to indicate a stroke, to all women around the world, and that have the power to save your life.
For starters, she warns you to stop thinking that this condition rarely affects women on the contrary, precisely women are a huge risk group, while their symptoms may significantly differ from those in men. For example, many women do not know that the symptoms of a stroke can be even a most simple hiccup and chest pain. This includes dizziness, headaches and stiffness which is expressed on one side of the body. Those symptoms that are common to both men and women are weakness in the arms and legs, loss of control of facial muscles, uneven lips while smiling and slurred speech.
If you feel any of these symptoms, especially in combination, do not hesitate and immediately see your doctor. Also, have in mind that smoking increases the risk of a stroke, as well as the pressure above 140/90. If your blood sugar level is higher than 5.7 you fall in the risk group, and also you must pay attention to your cholesterol. Those who suffer from diabetes are at even greater risk, in which the consequences of a stroke are even more serious.
