Symptoms of Stroke
Medical professionals must treat patients in accordance with the accepted medical standards of the community in which they practice. If a doctor fails to diagnose a life-threatening condition despite observable symptoms that a competent medical professional should recognize, he or she may be guilty of malpractice.
Symptoms of stroke may include:
- Difficulty walking
- Difficulty repeating a sentence
- Inability to raise both hands over your head
- Paralysis or numbness in a particular area of your body
- Blurred or darkened vision
- Severe headache
- Difficulty smiling
- A tongue that goes to one side or the other when you stick it out
If treated promptly, stroke victims have a high rate of complete recovery. Unnecessary delay can render the damage irreversible.
