Symptoms of Cerebrovascular accident

Symptoms of Cerebrovascular accident: Introduction

Symptoms of a cerebrovascular accident differ depending on a variety of factors, including the cause and the type and size of the area of the brain that is affected. In some cases, symptoms may be mild and only include weakness, dizziness or headache. Symptoms such as these may also be warning symptoms of an impending cerebrovascular accident. These symptoms can also be symptoms of a "small stroke", more accurately called a transient ischemic attack.

Cerebrovascular accidents often do occur suddenly with dramatic symptoms, such as numbness, weakness, and paralysis of the face, leg or arm, or entire side of the body. There may also be a loss of consciousness, facial drooping, slurred speech, aphasia, confusion, blurred vision, and impaired breathing or swallowing. There may also be difficulty understanding speech, change in vision, and incoordination. Nausea and vomiting may also occur.

Serious complications of cerebrovascular accident include long-term difficulties with such activities as walking, talking, movement of the limbs and permanent disability. Coma and death may also occur....more about Cerebrovascular accident »
