Types Of Strokes
Stroke symptoms may differ, depending upon the type of stroke, where it occurs in the brain, and how severe it is.
A less severe stroke may be more difficult to recognize.
An ischemic stroke happens when a vessel supplying blood to the brain becomes blocked.
It can happen for a variety of reasons.
For example: fatty deposits in arteries (atherosclerosis) can cause blood clots to form.
Sometimes a blood clot forms in the heart from an irregular heartbeat called atrial fibrillation.
It then travels to a place where it blocks an artery supplying the brain.
A hemorrhagic stroke happens when a weakened blood vessel ruptures and bleeds into the brain.
This can also happen for a variety of reasons.
A transient ischemic attack (TIA) is a "mini stroke" from a temporary blockage.
Although a TIA doesn't cause permanent brain damage, it may cause stroke warning signs, which may last minutes or even hours.
Think of this as a warning sign you shouldn't ignore.
