Cerebral palsy is one of the leading causes of severe disability in the United States. Nearly 800,000 people suffer a stroke each year, 700,000 of whom are newcomers and 150,000 of whom have relapsed. However, if you pay attention to some things in your daily life, there are ways to prevent them.
It contains some signs that should not be overlooked to avoid future strokes.
A stroke is similar to a heart attack, but in this case, it attacks the brain. In fact, a stroke occurs when a part of the brain is destroyed and our body is unable to function properly. The affected area of the brain requires urgent medical attention because it is important that the brain needs continuous oxygen for normal functioning.
Stroke symptoms usually develop quickly, but it can take hours or even days before something goes wrong. Therefore, if you suspect that any of these symptoms are occurring, it is important not to ignore them, even if they appear to be less serious.
1. High blood pressure
High blood pressure can damage the nerves in the brain and weaken blood vessels, causing serious problems such as stroke by causing leaks and ruptures. Other than that, high blood pressure is the reason why blood clots can form in the bloodstream and be carried to the brain, causing a stroke.
2. Visual problems
Stroke can cause diplopia, blindness in one eye, or blurred vision. When we asked about 1,300 people during the UK survey, they all remembered vision impairment/vision problems as a strong sign.
3. Numbness on one side of the body: face, hands, or feet
Numbness and weakness in the face, arms, and legs generally occur on both sides of the body. In some cases, there may be paralysis on the other side of the stroke.
4. Unreasonable dizziness and malaise
One study shows that dizziness and dizziness are also common factors in stroke patients. The confusion can be due to the affected side of the brain.
5. Sudden migraine or severe headache
During a stroke, blood flow to the brain is blocked or blocked due to interruptions in blood flow. This can cause blood vessels to rupture or damage, causing sudden migraines or headaches.
6. Stiff shoulders and shoulder pain.
Broken blood vessels in the brain can cause stiff shoulders and stiff shoulders. If you cannot touch your breasts with your chin (unless you are obese or otherwise), you should immediately consult your doctor.
Who is at stake here?
NCBI reports that these are the people most likely to have a stroke.
- People with high blood pressure: Above 140/90 mmHg, blood pressure is considered high. Age and Gender: Older men have more strokes than younger men and women.
- Smoking: Smoking can affect the amount of oxygen that reaches the brain, can cause a lot of damage to blood vessels, and can cause high blood pressure.
- Diabetes: Diabetes is caused by a deficiency of insulin, the hormone that regulates blood sugar levels in the body. When insulin is deficient, sugar cannot reach parts of the body that require energy, such as the brain.
- Heart disease: Heart disease can cause blood clots, block blood flow, and can cause a stroke.
Other risk factors:
- Alcohol and substance abuse
- Fast food / unhealthy diet
- Anxiety depression.
- Lack of physical activity
- Other neurological problems.
What should I do in case of an emergency?
If you are alone:
Call 911 or your nearest emergency number. Please do not drive to the hospital alone. Do not eat or drink anything. please do not worry. If you are under the age of 60, your chances of survival are as high as 60% to 70%. When supporting patients:
If you are helping the patient, hold the patient sideways with your head up. Be prepared to hold your head, as sometimes they can vomit. Speak calmly and make sure you are not worried. Pay close attention to the patient and inform the emergency personnel of the condition.
