Warning Signs of Stroke in Men

The American Heart Association created a memory tool as an easy way to identify the signs of a stroke. If someone you know might be having a stroke, it’s important to think F.A.S.T.:

  • Face Drooping
  • Arm weakness
  • Slurring of speech
  • Time to call 911

Immediate treatment can be lifesaving during a stroke and increases chances of a full recovery. It is important to remember that a stroke is a medical emergency and you should call 911 immediately.

 Although F.A.S.T. can be an easy way to remember the signs of a stroke, there are several other symptoms to be aware of. These signs of a brain dysfunction include:
  • Numbness or weakness of the face, arm, or leg, especially on one side of the body
  • Dizziness
  • Sudden headache with no cause
  • Loss of balance or coordination
  • Difficulty seeing in one or both eyes
  • Confusion
  • Inability to speak or difficulty understanding conversation
  • Fatigue
  • Stomach pain and/or nausea
