Stroke - signs and symptoms - Better Health Channel -open

Strokes have symptoms which act as warning signs. Transient ischaemic attacks (TIAs) are an important warning sign that a stroke may occur in the future. Symptoms can include a numb or weak feeling in the face, arm or leg, trouble speaking or understanding, unexplained dizziness, blurred or poor vision in one or both eyes, loss of balance or an unexplained fall, difficulty swallowing, headache, confusion and unconsciousness.
