Remember the most experienced healthcare professionals probably, more often than not, send patients to the ER for things that don’t turn out to be that serious. We’re like baseball players, so even the Hall of Famers get a hit only one out of three times at best. So if you are in doubt, about signs such as weakness, slurring of speech, or just not acting right, don’t be embarrassed that you might ultimately be wrong whether that person across the table from you is having a stroke or not. Be a friend, and don’t hesitate to call 911! PS, the same rules apply to you if you’re having symptoms of a stroke.
