What do I do during a stroke?

When blood flow to your brain is stopped, it's called a stroke. It strikes suddenly, and it's important to act quickly. The five warning signs of a stroke are weakness, trouble speaking, vision problems, headache, and dizziness. A stroke victim has a better chance of a good recovery if they reach a hospital within three hours of their stroke, so recognize the warning sites and act quickly.
