A stroke occurs when a blood vessel in the brain is blocked or bursts. Without blood and the oxygen it carries, brain damage can begin within minutes, so it is important to know the symptoms of stroke and act fast. Quick treatment can help limit damage to the brain and increase the chance of a full recovery.
