heard that another symptom of a stroke is a crooked tongue

Resolved Question:

We have just heard that another symptom of a stroke is a "crooked" tongue. Is this just a rumor or a new diagnosis for a stroke?

I have personally never heard of a cooked tongue being a symptom of a stroke. General symptoms of a stroke include numbness, weakness, or paralysis of the face, arm, or leg usually on one side of the body, vision problems in one or both eyes, confusion, trouble speaking or understanding, trouble walking, dizziness, loss of balance or coordination, and severe headache. Treatment depends on the type of stroke. This could involve surgery, medications, or both. You can read more here

A person might know generally that they have had one, if they are familiar with symptoms they are experiencing but it is always best to see a doctor for an evaluation if you feel you may have had a stroke or even mini stroke.
