Symptoms

Strokes normally occur quickly and, as such, symptoms of stroke often appear suddenly without warning.
Often the main symptoms of stroke are:
• Confusion, including trouble with speaking and understanding
• Headache, possibly with altered consciousness or vomiting
• Numbness of the face, arm or leg, particularly on one side of the body
• Trouble with seeing, in one or both eyes
• Trouble with walking, including dizziness and lack of co-ordination.
