Can you recognize the symptoms of a Stroke?

We have a dear friend who suffered a stroke and it will only take a minute for you to read this...

A neurologist says that if he can get to a stroke victim within 3 hours he can reverse the effects of a stroke ...totally. he said the trick was getting a stroke recognized, diagnosed, and then getting the patient medically cared for within 3 hours!

Can you recognize stroke symptoms?

-Ask the person to SMILE.

-Ask the person to TALK.

-Ask the person to Raise Both Arms.

-Ask the person to stick out their Tongue.

If the tongue is crooked or they trouble with any of the above  tasks, call 9-1-1 and describe the symptons.

By passing this on, I hope that we can help others , like our dear friend.

Margaret,

If this helps one person to escape the devestating effects of a stroke, what a gift it is.  Thanks for sharing.

Marshall, This was written back in 2006 and is still important information.
