Every year, 15 million people worldwide suffer a stroke. Nearly six million die and another five million are left permanently disabled. Stroke is the second leading cause of disability, after dementia. Disability may include loss of vision and / or speech, paralysis and confusion.
Globally, stroke is the second leading cause of death above the age of 60 years, and the fifth leading cause of death in people aged 15 to 59 years old.
Stroke is less common in people under 40 years, although it does happen. In young people the most common causes are high blood pressure or sickle cell disease.
In many developed countries the incidence of stroke is declining even though the actual number of strokes is increasing because of the ageing population.
Do comeover after getting stroke and don’t feel it you are alone and no hope to live.
We are here to help and get back to near normal.
