Sometimes symptoms of a stroke are difficult to identify. Unfortunately, the lack of awareness spells disaster. The stroke victim may suffer severe brain damage when people nearby fail to recognize the symptoms of a stroke. Now doctors say a bystander can recognize a stroke by asking three simple questions:

Another 'sign' of a stroke is this: Ask the person to 'stick' out their tongue. If the tongue is 'crooked' (if it goes to one side or the other), that is also an indication of a stroke.

If he or she has trouble with any one of these tasks, call 911 immediately! and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher.

Depending on the stroke you have that is true. But I had a stroke almost a month ago which is a spinal stroke and the questions asked there would not apply. I was temporarily paralyzed from just below my chest down. I still have some paralysis from it. But thank God I am still alive. So there are diffferent kinds of strokes. I was told what happened to me is very very rare. Considering I am only 36.
