The main signs of stroke linked to AstraZeneca vaccine, according to experts

Published on

While researchers are still studying exactly how AZ Covid-19 Vaccine affects the brain, the evidence suggests it increase the risk of stroke.

The results of a recent study, published in Research Square, claim that AZ vaccine contains a large proportion of human and viral proteins that are not part of the vaccine and this could influence the vaccine effect and possibly also promote side effects such as Cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST) also known as a blood clot.

No matter your age or if you had the AstraZeneca COVID vaccine or not, you should never ignore stroke symptoms.

Signs of stroke to look out for after receiving the AstraZeneca coronavirus vaccine

According to experts from the NHS, the main symptoms of stroke can be memorized with the word FAST:

  1. Face – the face may have dropped on 1 side, the person may not be able to smile, or their mouth or eye may have drooped.
  2. Arms – the person may not be able to lift both arms and keep them there because of weakness or numbness in 1 arm.
  3. Speech – their speech may be slurred or garbled, or the person may not be able to talk at all despite appearing to be awake; they may also have problems understanding what you’re saying to them.
  4. Time – it’s time to dial 999 immediately if you notice any of these signs or symptoms.

And other signs and symptoms may include:

  1. Complete paralysis of one side of the body
  2. Sudden loss or blurring of vision
  3. Dizziness
  4. Confusion
  5. Difficulty understanding what others are saying
  6. Problems with balance and co-ordination
  7. Difficulty swallowing
  8. A sudden and very severe headache resulting in a blinding pain unlike anything experienced before
  9. Loss of consciousness

Generally the signs of a stroke appear all of a sudden. 

But signs could also evolve gradually over hours or even days, sometimes go unnoticed. 

The British model who died due to stroke after her first covid jab had an unusual headache on the right side and around her eyes six days after having her vaccine.

It wasn’t until five days later she was seen by doctors, when she woke up felt drowsy and weakness to her face, arm and leg.

The second patient, according to the Sun, suffered headache, confusion, weakness in her left arm, and loss of vision on the left side 12 days after her vaccine.

The third patient was admitted to hospital after having problems speaking and understanding language. 

Earlier, experts reported impurities in the Astrazeneca vaccine – this could be the main reason behind side effects such as Blood Clots.
