In brief: See below

Sudden heavy feeling or paralysis or weakness of one side of the body, drooping of the same side of the face.
Slurred speech, confusion, vision changes, and headache. These symptoms have a sudden onset and would all happen on the same side of the body. If you or someone you know is experiencing these signs, call for help immediately and take note of the time of symptom onset.

Annual physicals can help you prevent stroke by uncovering risk factors such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol. Quit smoking.
