Did you know that the tongue is the fourth indicator of a stroke?
If you recognize the symptoms of a stroke you can reverse the effects of a stroke and save someone’s life! But first, let me tell you a story what can happen if you can’t identify the symptoms of a stroke.
During a BBQ, a woman lost balance and took a little fall, assuring everyone that she was okay and that this happened because she had tripped over a brick.
She got a new plate of food, quickly forgetting about this and continued enjoying her food. After she went home, Jane’s husband called later, telling everyone that she had been taken to the hospital (at 6:00 PM Jane passed away). The doctors told that Jane had suffered a stroke at BBQ.
This story tells that if the people around her had known how to recognize the symptoms of a stroke, perhaps she would still be with us.
Do you have a minute of your precious time to read this? If yes, you stand a chance of saving someone’s life in the future.
Neurologists claim that if you can get to a stroke victim, within 3 hours you can completely reverse the effects of a stroke. It is very important to recognize the stroke, diagnose and get the medical care.
Identifying a Stroke
It can be really difficult to identify the symptoms of a stroke. Well, this is because you did not know what to do in that moment. Well, until now.
The victim of a stroke may experience severe brain damage when people around him/her are not able to recognize the symptoms of a stroke.
Everyone can recognize the symptoms of a stroke. All you need to do is as these three simple questions:
- Ask the individual to smile
- Ask the individual to talk and tell a simple sentence.
- Ask him or her to raise both arms
If the person has difficulties to do one of these tasks, make sure to call the emergency number right away and describe the symptoms.
- New Sign of a Stroke-Stick out Your Tongue
Note: Also, you should ask the person to ‘stick’ out their tongue. If the tongue is ‘crooked’, if it goes to one side or the other, this is another sign of a stroke.
According to cardiologists, if you share this message with 10 people, you will save at least one life.
