A stroke happens when your brain isn’t getting the blood it needs.

There are two main causes of stroke: a blocked artery (ischemic stroke) or leaking or bursting of a blood vessel (hemorrhagic stroke). Treatment is required right away to lower chances of permanent damage to the brain, disability, or even death. Sometimes a stroke happens gradually, but you’re likely to have one or more sudden symptoms. 

Minutes matter in treating stroke so if you experience any of these symptoms it’s best to call ER24 on 084 124.
