Warning signs of a stroke are clues that your brain is not getting enough oxygen. You and your family should learn these warning signs. Time lost is brain lost; with every minute that goes by, brain cells die. There are treatments which can be started in the hospital to open up a blocked artery in the brain but they need to be started as soon as possible.
