What are some ways to tell a stroke is coming? And why is it so important to recognize them as early as possible? L. J.
Dear L. J.,
Strokes are the third leading cause of death in the United States. Each year approximately 795,000 people suffer strokes in the world. Many die, and those who don’t often suffer permanent disability.
And the saddest part – many of these strokes are preventable. Not all strokes can be prevented, but there are many warning signs ahead of time that can save a life if recognized. The problem is that people just don’t know what to look for.
