Whether it’s a transient ischemic attack (TIA) formerly known as a mini stroke, now known as TIA, or an actual stroke, please be aware of what to do and to look for:

F.A.S.T.E.R.
Face
Arm
Stability
Talking
Eyes
React a.msn.com/r/2/BB1a7HDH?m…
F stands for Face, which refers to drooping or numbness on one side of the face versus the other. Ask the person to smile to make the droop more apparent.
A stands for Arms, which refers to one arm being weaker or more numb than the other. Ask the individual to raise both arms up and hold them for a count of ten. If one arm falls or begins to drop, then this could be a sign of a stroke.
S stands for Stability, which refers to steadiness on your feet. Sometimes individuals will fall, feel very dizzy or be unable to stand without assistance. Difficulty maintaining balance, trouble walking and loss of coordination are all possible stroke symptoms.
T stands for Talking - changes in speech including slurring, garbled, nonsensical words, or the inability to respond appropriately. Individuals experiencing a TIA/stroke may be difficult to understand, or they may have difficulty understanding others.
E stands for Eyes, which refers to visual changes. These visual changes occur suddenly and can include complete vision loss in one eye, double vision, and partial loss of vision in one or both eyes.
R stands for React, which is a reminder to call 911 immediately if you recognize any of these symptoms. Call even if the symptoms go away and try to remember when they first began..
