Was that brief numbness in your arm a pinched nerve or an early warning of a devastating stroke?

It's important to pay attention and alert your doctor if you experience any of the following:

  • Sudden numbness or weakness of the face, arm or leg, especially on one side of the body
  • Sudden confusion, trouble speaking or understanding
  • Sudden trouble seeing in one or both eyes
  • Sudden trouble walking, dizziness, loss of balance or coordination
  • Sudden, severe headache with no known cause

Doctors are now even treating "mini-strokes" with maximum care.
