Two friends of mine have suffered strokes this month (and it’s only the 10th) – both women of about 40, living in Belgium. I’m glad to hear that
Facial weakness: Can the person smile? Has their face fallen on one side?
Arm weakness: Can the person raise both arms and keep them there?
Speech problems: Can the person speak clearly and understand what you say? Is their speech slurred?
Time: If you see any one of these three signs, it’s TIME to call emergency services. Stroke is always a medical emergency that requires immediate medical attention.
It can happen to any of us.
