Early stroke. Head dizzy and vomiting?
Q: My father, who is in his early fifties, has been having a headache for two days and often vomits.
I didn’t hear it myself, but I overheard him talking to his mother. My father is under a lot of stress because he has a very bad family situation.
Is it wrong to conclude that it is an early stroke with only the above two symptoms?
A: If you have a sudden superelevation or numbness, you are very likely to have a stroke. The vomiting caused by headaches or dizziness is also a symptom that should not be ignored.
You may have lesions in your left or right brain, so visit your nearest neurologist as soon as possible for diagnosis and treatment. Stroke has different treatment and prognosis depending on the cause and location of occurrence.
