When an individual experiences a stroke, they may experience a major stroke or a mini-stroke.

Many individuals that experience a mini-stroke will delay seeking the medical attention required for the condition.

As a result, it puts them at a higher risk of experiencing a stroke that is considered to be life-threatening.

This is referred to as a major stroke. It could occur in a short time span of a mini-stroke, or in the future of the sufferer.

Both a mini-stroke and a major stroke could result in major complications as far as health is concerned.

Most of us are aware of strokes and the fact that they can severely impair the way we live our lives.

Every single year, hundreds of thousands of people suffer from a stroke.

When most people think of illnesses that result in death, they tend to think of heart disease and cancer as being the biggest killers.

The proper name for a stroke is a cerebrovascular accident.

A stroke occurs when the flow of blood to the brain is interrupted, usually due to a burst blood vessel, or when the flow of blood is blocked by a blood clot.

This damages brain cells because they no longer receive the oxygen and nutrients that are needed to function normally.

The impact of a stroke will depend greatly on the level of damage that the brain has received.

A severe stroke can cause the individual physical disablement, mental impairment, and in the worst cases sudden death.

Paralysis and Paresis

Paralysis or loss of motor control is one of the most common disabilities that patients suffer from following a stroke.

Partial paralysis, known as paresis or weakening of motor control, is also very common in stroke.

Paralysis usually affects the side of the body opposite to the side of the brain on which the stroke occurred.

Affected areas may include the arm, leg, face or, at times, the entire side of the body.
