Welcome to Healthcare Magic
A stroke may present in various ways, few of which may be sudden onset of weakness of a half of the body, difficulty in speaking, deviation of the mouth to one side, numbness, etc. Try to sit/lie down if possible to avoid getting hurt by falling down. If you ever get such a feeling you need to be taken to the Hospital as acute stroke can usually be treted well to get you recovered soon. Do not delay in this. Keep phone numbers handy for fast dialing. Go to the ER immediately.
