Since you have not mentioned what symptoms you had when you were diagnosed with a stroke , i suggest you be aware of the following symptoms which are suggestive of stroke

2. weakness or paralysis
of any of the limbs
3. any other neurological deficit like weakness of facial muscles
4. dooling of saliva , inability to swallow , inability to breathe
