Hemorrhagic stroke

about my type of stroke you can peek here

Hemorrhagic stroke

Symptoms of stroke depend on the type and which area of the brain is effected. Signs of ischemic stroke usually occur suddenly, and signs of hemorrhagic stroke usually develop gradually. Symptoms include the following:

* Difficulty speaking or understanding speech (aphasia)
* Difficulty walking
* Dizziness or lightheadedness (vertigo)
* Numbness, paralysis, or weakness, usually on one side of the body
* Seizure (relatively rare)
* Severe headache with no known cause
* Sudden confusion
* Sudden decrease in the level of consciousness
* Sudden loss of balance or coordination
* Sudden vision problems (e.g., blurry vision, blindness in one eye)
* Vomiting

My stroke happened on August 2001 it was caused by my high blood pressure, PLEASE get on BP meds if you have high blood pressure. Its a MUST. I am now on 3 different meds for it I had my stroke when I was 31
