There are a number of symptoms that can be linked to the build-up of a stroke. The most typical side-effect is a numbness and paralysis down one side of the body, followed by a loss of balance and disorientation. High blood pressure is another main cause of strokes and it is important to protect the flow of blood to avoid killing brain cells.
The fall-out of a stroke can lead to short-term and long-term deficiencies. In many cases stroke sufferers encounter paralysis, cognitive memory problems and difficulties with speech and language.
There are a number of lifestyle choices which can be taken to avoid and recover from a stroke. By leading a healthy lifestyle sufferers can prolong lifespan and avoid the chance of a reoccurrence.
