Fact vs. Fiction: The Truth About Stroke

Last updated 4 years ago

Do you know the symptoms of a stroke? While some people believe that you cannot tell if someone else is having a stroke, this is a myth. A person having a stroke typically shows drooping on one side of the face, an inability to lift or lower one arm, and slurred or confused speech. This is just one of the fictions surrounding stroke, which is a serious condition that requires immediate attention from the closest emergency room. It is also a myth that strokes only happen in elderly people—in fact, almost 25% of all strokes happen in people under the age of 65. Rapid treatment and rehabilitation from the Palms of Pasadena Hospital’s Stroke Center in St. Petersburg can help prevent and even reverse some of the damage caused by a stroke.
