Health.com: 10 Stroke Symptoms Everyone Should Know

Severe Headache

A sudden, severe headache, perhaps the worst you’ve ever had, is a common stroke symptom.

One study involving 588 patients found people who experienced headache with the onset of stroke tended to be younger and have a history of migraine. Women were more likely to have a headache with stroke than men.

Dr. Chaturvedi and colleagues found young adults with stroke symptoms, including migraine, are sometimes misdiagnosed. “If they have stroke-like symptoms, they should request a neurology consult or brain MRI in the emergency room,” he said.
