Every year, millions of people around the world are affected by strokes, a serious medical condition that can have life-altering consequences. Strokes occur when blood flow to the brain is interrupted, leading to brain cell damage and potential long-term disabilities. While strokes can happen suddenly, the human body often sends warning signs well in advance. Recognizing these signs and taking appropriate action can make a significant difference in preventing the occurrence of a stroke or minimizing its impact. In this article, we will explore the warning signs that your body may send you one month before a stroke and emphasize the importance of not ignoring them.
Before delving into the warning signs, it’s essential to understand what a stroke is and how it occurs. A stroke is a medical emergency that happens when the blood supply to a part of the brain is disrupted or reduced. There are three main types of strokes: ischemic stroke, hemorrhagic stroke, and transient ischemic attack (TIA), also known as a mini-stroke. Ischemic strokes, caused by a blocked or narrowed artery, account for the majority of stroke cases.
