Strokes can affect people of any age and occurs when your brain is not receiving needed blood supply or when a blood vessel in the brain bursts and spills blood into spaces around your brain cells, according to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke. In simpler terms, a stroke is the brain’s version of a heart attack.

During a stroke, you may experience symptoms that affect you both mentally and physically. Depending upon the location of the stroke, symptoms vary.

If you are suffering from a stroke on the right side of the brain, it’s likely you will suffer from the following symptoms:

  • Challenges with picking up items and judging distances

  • Paralysis or weakness on the left side of your body

  • Difficulty understanding someone’s tone of voice or facial expressions

A stroke on the left side of the brain often produces the following symptoms:

  • Difficulty creating words or understanding the words of others

  • Paralysis or weakness on the right side of your body

  • Slurred speech

In addition to specific symptoms and ailments designated from a right or left brain stroke, many patients also have difficulty with:

  • Judgment

  • Attention

  • Thinking

  • Learning

  • Memory

  • Awareness

The symptoms alone can make it difficult to remain positive after a stroke, especially since the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, estimates that ¼ of all stroke victims are at risk for an additional stroke within five years.

However, help is available.
