Don't Hesitate When it Comes to Stroke Symptoms

It doesn't matter how much fun you're having at the fair, if you suffer from a sudden weakness or sudden vision or coordination problems don't wait to visit a doctor.

A study in the British Medical Journal looked at 91,000 patients and found that most who experienced a minor stroke waited until doctors hours to see help, sometimes delaying treatment as much as 24 hours.

Remember you don't mess around if it is a stroke, because immediate treatment can help reverse the damage.
