Stroke Symptoms

Getting immediate medical care for stroke symptoms is critical. It can mean the difference between complete recovery and a lifetime of serious disability. Look for any of the following:

  • Sudden severe headache with no known cause
  • Sudden numbness or weakness of the face
  • Slurred speech
  • Sudden numbness or weakness of an arm or leg, especially on one side of the body
  • Sudden trouble seeing in one or both eyes
  • Sudden trouble walking
  • Dizziness
  • Loss of balance
  • Loss of coordination

AtlantiCare uses the BEFAST acronym to help identify stroke symptoms. If you or someone you know experiences any of the following symptoms, call 9-1-1 immediately.
