Stroke is the fifth-leading cause of death nationwide. Brain damage from strokes can be minimized if they are treated promptly, but it’s common to mistake signs of a stroke for other health problems, which delays treatment. A stroke occurs when a blood vessel carrying oxygen and nutrients to the brain either bursts or is obstructed from a blood clot. When this happens, parts of the brain cannot receive necessary oxygen – and cells begin to die.
Around 80 percent of all strokes are preventable. As is the case with every other preventable medical condition, awareness is the key. HERE ARE POSSIBLE SIGNS OF A STROKE TO NEVER IGNORE.

A blocked blood vessel can reduce the amount of oxygen getting to the eye, which causes vision issues that may not be accompanied by any other signs of stroke. Exhaustion may also be a sign of anemia. Here are symptoms of anemia you should never ignore.
