stoke emergency

It is better to call an ambulance than drive yourself or letting someone else drive you to the hospital. In the ambulance, medical personnel can begin life-saving treatment on the way.

Do not delay a trip to the hospital even if the symptoms occur for a few moments and then disappear. These brief episodes are known as transient ischemic attacks (TIAs) and may put you at a higher risk of a full stroke in the near future.


Subtle Differences Between Stroke and Migraine Symptoms

At times, stroke or TIA symptoms may be confused with migraine aura symptoms. In such cases, remember:

  • Symptoms of a stroke or TIA are sudden, whereas migraine aura symptoms develop slowly and then spread and intensify.
  • Migraine symptoms tend to be positive and you experience additional stimuli, such as seeing flashing lights and zigzag shapes. On the other hand, stroke or TIA symptoms typically begin with negative symptoms, such as loss of vision, hearing, sensation or limb power.

Risk Factors

Although a stroke can strike anyone at any time, these factors can increase your risk:

  • Age 55 or older
  • High blood pressure
  • Smoking
  • Diabetes
  • Other conditions like heart disease, atrial fibrillation and blood disorders
  • Migraines with aura, or visual disturbances
  • Family history

To help prevent or delay a stroke, it is imperative to control the risk factors. Plus, eat a healthy diet rich in a variety of fruits, vegetables and whole grains, get regular exercise and maintain a healthy weight.
