One of the scariest things that can happen to you in your life is undoubtedly when you have a stroke. It is a scary thing to happen, in general, and is probably among the scariest things that can happen to you in terms of what would be enormously detrimental to your physical and often, your mental well-being.
It can be a debilitating and devastating disorder and what makes it so daunting is the fact that it can often seem to come out of nowhere and it might seem like it would be impossible to prevent it because you often have a difficult time recognizing what the warning signs tend to be for knowing that a stroke is about to strike.
In a study that was conducted with thousands of people over the span of eight years, scientists and researchers found that there are some signals and warning signs and potential symptoms of a potential upcoming stroke. And a certain slew of risk factors were determined to be common when investigating strokes, their causes, their effects, and what leads up to them.
If you are a smoker or a drinker, you tend to increase your risk for a stroke, as well as if you happen to have some things that are out of your control like hypertension or diabetes.
