What Are The Symptoms Of A Potential Stroke?

My neighbor woke with some swelling on the left side of his face and somewhat of a droop to the left side of his mouth. His wife said his speech was slurred but has cleared up. The left side of his face is still tingling with numbness. His answer was to take a benedryl tablet. Could these be symtoms of a stroke?
