A woman records her own stroke. In real time. On YouTube.

A woman experienced symptoms of a stroke: facial droop, dysarthria, arm weakness and reduced fine motor control.  She  recorded these symptoms in a real time video, which is now on YouTube.  Several days prior, she experienced similar symptoms that were dismissed by physicians.  After this episode, she was correctly diagnosed with a transient ischemic attack, and now on appropriate medications.  But I agree with Dr. Markku Kaste with the World Stroke Organization: “Don’t waste time on a video, just call 911.”
