A wonderful discovery that could save a lot of lives is the updated early symptoms of a stroke. The present standard for telling if a person is having a stroke is “the slurring of words.” Some health workers know that persistent headaches accompanied by neck pain are the earliest symptoms of a stroke.
The Pacific Northwest is the worst place in the country for stroke occurrence. The Pierce County area is one of four counties in Washington that are worst in the Pacific Northwest. We need to warn our seniors, stroke patients and the disabled to seek help if they experience these symptoms.
We could save many of our neighbors and community members if we can get the word around. Please remember the people we save could be a family member.
