The American Heart Association estimates that more than 100,000 women aged below 65 will have a stroke on an annual basis. So you need to be able to recognize the symptoms to avoid joining that horrific annual number of strokes.

According to medical experts, the longer you wait to treat stroke symptoms, the higher is the risk of permanent damage to happen. The best defense mechanism to protect your health is to detect the symptoms and get to an ER early. Of course, it may be something benign, but the problem is, you have no idea whether it’s truly benign or not.
