Strokes do not cause pain, but some patients feel a severe pain in the legs in the upper extremities or on one side of the face.

Loss of balance/Trouble walking.
A feeling of weakness and lethargy in the legs. Patients with stroke often experience paralysis and collapse. Raise your hands and keep them at the top. Hold this position for 10 seconds. If your hands fall, your muscles are too weak to handle the pressure. It is time to call an Ambulance.
