"FAST" Formula to recognize the common symptoms of stroke. #WorldStrokeDay

F for drooping Face: The moment you notice a droop or an uneven smile on the person’s face, it is a warning sign of stroke.

A for numb Arms: If a person feels numbness or a little weakness in the arms, it is most likely a warning sign of stroke. In case you feel unsure of the warning sign, ask the person to raise his/her arms. If the arms drop down or aren’t steady when raised, it is a warning sign of stroke.

S for difficulty in Speech: If a person finds it difficult in speech, it is a warning sign of stroke. Slurring speech can be a sign that a person is having a stroke.

T stands for Time: If a person is having any of the above symptoms or all of them, you need to act immediately and take necessary steps like call your doctor and for an ambulance.

Some other symptoms of stroke include troubles in vision in both eyes, numbness in limbs on one side of the body, unexplained fatigue, experiencing difficulty while walking, feeling confused or finding trouble in understanding other people, trouble in seeing with one or both eyes, severe headache that comes for no reason, and dizziness.
