There are a variety of factors that make women more susceptible to having a stroke, but the good news is that early detection and treatment can greatly reduce the likelihood of permanent disability.
Women should be especially aware of the following warning symptoms of a stroke, as outlined by Healthline.
It is usual for women who have had a stroke of this type to experience extreme nausea and/or vomiting after the event.
Also, seizures are a very concerning indicator of a stroke in women.
Stroke symptoms such as persistent hiccups or difficulty breathing, particularly in women, should never be disregarded.
Physical discomfort, dizziness, or fainting is the fourth indicator of a stroke.
