People often ask what are the key signs for having a stroke. A stroke is similar to a heart attack, in that it involves potentially a blood clot or a spasm in an artery, the only difference being that one occurs in your heart and the other occurs in your brain. If you are having a stroke you may experience heavy sweating with no exertion, you may experience garbled speech, you may have pain on one or more of your arms or numbness or tingling, you may have the inability to walk appropriately and you may have dizziness. If you have any signs or a loved one has a sign that they’re having a stroke call 911 right away.
