One is the first two? Feeling that this head is not your own? Feeling like my head is going to explode?
This is not a sign of stroke, is it?
What are the manifestations of stroke?
STEP 1 Severe headaches
Headache caused by stroke is usually very serious and will make you feel the most painful in your life.
2. Unilateral myasthenia
One or both sides of the body are weak or unable to move. Can’t hold things in your hand well, such as cups, bowls, chopsticks, books, mobile phones, etc.
3. Language barriers
Can’t express what you want to say well, speak vaguely or nonsense, or can’t understand what others are saying is what.
4. Visual impairment
One eye or two eyes can’t see clearly, even blind.
If these symptoms occur, remember to call 120 emergency calls for help immediately or send them to a nearby hospital immediately.
Most headaches are not caused by strokes
Fortunately, only a small proportion of headaches are caused by stroke.
In addition to stroke, there are too many causes that can lead to headache. Excessive anxiety, nervousness, migraine and even blood sugar fluctuations can also cause you discomfort and headache.
Other common causes of headache:
Migraine attacks can sometimes affect vision and limb movements and need to be distinguished from stroke.
People with migraine are more prone to stroke, so if you find that the discomfort caused by migraine is different from the past, you must be careful whether you have suffered a stroke!
Sudden rise in blood pressure can cause headache attacks, limb weakness, blurred vision and other symptoms, which may occur when your blood pressure is not well controlled or you suffer from refractory hypertension.
At the same time, elevated blood pressure can induce stroke onset. Therefore, if you have hypertension, you must take medicine according to the doctor’s advice and control your blood pressure below 140/90 mmHg. For special groups, please control your blood pressure according to the target set by the doctor.
3. Blood glucose fluctuation
Low or high blood sugar will lead to visual impairment.
People with diabetes problems, if they do not receive good treatment or indulge themselves in eating and drinking, their blood sugar may increase significantly, which may lead to delirium and coma. Patients with stroke due to these symptoms may also appear.
How to judge whether it is a stroke?
Many stroke patients later described the headache caused by stroke as [the most painful headache in my life, none of them].
From their description, we can know that the headache caused by stroke is usually much more serious, and people who have not experienced it may feel that their headache is the most painful in history!
In addition to headache, you can also preliminarily judge whether there is a stroke through this test, which is called [talking and laughing].
Talk: Try to say a word clearly and completely, such as [I’m thirsty, help me pour a glass of water].
Smile: Smile to see if one side of the mouth is askew and the other side is expressionless.
Use: Try to raise your arms to see if one arm doesn’t work.
Soldier: If you can’t speak well, smile normally and raise your arms, then you need to move reinforcements quickly.
Call 120 emergency calls immediately, or send to the hospital immediately.
In the face of stroke, time is life. The earlier treatment, the greater the possibility of cure.
Even if sometimes these [stroke] symptoms are only temporary and soon healed, they need to be paid attention to and treated. Because this may be caused by transient ischemic attack (TIA), which is the precursor symptom of stroke!
