Signs and Symptoms that Shows You May Be Suffering from Stroke: Stroke is one of the leading causes of death worldwide. According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), stroke is the second leading cause of death worldwide; WHO estimates that ischaemic heart disease is the leading cause of death worldwide.
