Strokes: Signs to look out for
Things to know about strokes

Strokes are said to be the leading cause of death and disability around the world. A stroke occurs when the blood supply to a part of the brain is blocked or if a blood vessel in the brain bursts. This tends to cause great damage to part of the brain, which impairs bodily functions, leading to disability and can even lead to death.

Similar to many other chronic illnesses, the risk of getting a stroke increases as you age. The American Stroke Association has said that every 10 years after age 55, one's risk of stroke nearly doubles.

According to his family, the news broke two years after Sinbad faced an ischemic attack. As a result of this, the blood clot had moved from his pumping heart to his brain, he was given a hopeful prognosis at first, but the following day he had another blood clot. His brain began to expand shortly after he underwent a second surgery, and when surgeons performed a craniotomy to relieve the pressure, they found a brain bleed.
