The symptoms of a stroke include:
Some people may experience a mini-stroke (TIA), where symptoms last for less than 24 hours. However, it is important to note that 40 percent of people who have a TIA will have an actual stroke, often within the first few days after a TIA. Get to a hospital immediately if you or a loved one experience any of these symptoms.
Types of Strokes
The risk factors for carotid artery disease and stroke include:
Carotid artery disease is responsible for about 30% of all strokes and can easily be diagnosed with a simple, noninvasive, and painless vascular ultrasound test. If you have had any of the above symptoms, speak to your doctor about getting an ultrasound. At South Bay Vascular, we offer screening ultrasounds for a nominal fee. This test can be done in just 15 minutes, and results will be sent immediately to you or your family physician.
