Signs of Possible Stroke

 Blood Clots/Stroke – Now They Have A Fourth Indicator

 Remember the first three letters  S T R

 S  — ask the person to Smile

 T — Ask the person to Talk and speak a simple sentence

 R — Ask him to Raise both arms.

 If the person has trouble with any one of these tasks he may be having a blood clot or stroke.  Immediately call 911.

 Now the fourth sign — ask the person to stick out his tongue.  If the tongue goes to one side or the other, he may be having a stroke.
