Stroke is the third leading cause of death and the No. 1 cause of disability among Americans, but the good news is that up to 80 percent of all strokes are preventable.
The best way to avoid serious and permanent injury from stroke is to act quickly, but because the severity of stroke can vary greatly from person to person, it's important to be aware of the general symptoms.
Answer these simple questions to find out if you or someone you love has had a stroke — your answers could save a life.
If the person exhibits any of these symptoms, call 911 or get to a hospital immediately.
