Although most people recover from a stroke quickly and without complications, in up to 15% of cases a stroke can be followed by a more serious stroke. According to experts, consulted by Revyuh, these are the main symptoms of the so-called silent stroke:
- gait disorders;
- vision problems;
- difficulties in speaking clearly;
- facial asymmetry;
- numbness and weakness in the limbs.
The neurologists stressed that people suffering from hypertension, diabetes and cardiovascular diseases are at a higher risk of having a stroke. You should also be careful if you lead a sedentary lifestyle and are overweight.
As experts point out that prevention measures such as heart rate control, a balanced diet and constant physical activity help “reduce the risk of stroke by up to 80%.”
