A stroke is when the brain is affected by an injury to the blood vessels.
This usually happens when the blood flow in the brain changes.
Some people have the sudden loss of sensation in the left side of their body.
This is called a transient ischaemic attack.
The most common symptom of a stroke is dizziness.
The condition can also affect vision and balance.
Stroke is a serious medical condition that affects more than 1 in 10,000 people worldwide.
The first case of a mild stroke was reported in 1882 in Scotland.
Today, about 100,000 strokes occur in the UK each year.
About 15% of people who have a stroke develop it within a year.
A mild stroke is also called transient ischemic attack.
In most cases, it is not life-threatening, and there is no need to seek medical attention.
It usually lasts between 3 and 10 days.
In some cases, the damage is permanent and the person cannot move or walk again.
However, the condition is rare.
People with a stroke can have a normal life, including normal activities such as eating, sleeping and talking.
People who have an ischaemia in the right side of the brain can also have a mild ischaemias.
There are three types of strokes: a stroke of the left hemisphere, a stroke that strikes the left arm, and a stroke with symptoms on both sides.
Symptoms of a left-sided stroke can include loss of consciousness and confusion, a change in balance and the inability to see or hear.
It is the second most common type of ischaema.
It affects around 2,000,000 patients in the United Kingdom each year and affects around 1 in 20,000.
It can affect the left eye and the right arm.
Strokes in the upper arm are called left sided strokes.
Symptoms are similar to a stroke on the right.
They can also include numbness or tingling, weakness and fatigue.
There is no cure for a left sided stroke.
The cause is usually genetic.
There may be a mutation in the gene responsible for the left sided gene.
However it is possible that some people who carry this gene have a more severe form of the disease.
