A stroke is a medical condition that occurs when there is a disruption in the blood supply to the brain, leading to the death of brain cells. This can happen either due to a blockage in the blood vessels (ischemic stroke) or the rupture of blood vessels (hemorrhagic stroke). Symptoms of a stroke may include sudden numbness or weakness, confusion, difficulty speaking or understanding speech, and trouble walking. Immediate medical attention is crucial to minimize the damage caused by a stroke.
