3. Changes in Vision
Your eyesight is so very important to you, and when you begin to notice sudden declines in it, there is definitely cause for concern. Stroke patients can often describe one of their initial symptoms as being a decrease in their eyesight.
If you or someone you know suddenly finds themselves having trouble seeing, or are experiencing blurry vision in one or both eyes, then they may be suffering from a stroke. Different people experience different vision disturbances. Some examples of impaired vision include seeing double, blurred images, blackened, or darkened vision. You may even experience a complete loss of vision in one eye. This sign is much less recognized than arm weakness or facial drooping, but is just as strong of an indicator that you need to seek immediate medical attention.
