Think you know the signs of a stroke? According to a recent study, men and women show symptoms differently, resulting in misdiagnosis and delay of the proper treatment.

While men will usually indicate changes in their speech, vision and motor functions, women often complain of headaches, limb pain and disorientation.

If you notice any of these symptoms, be sure to make your doctors aware so that they can get you on the right track to recovery!
