Stroke signs to look for.

Now doctors say a bystander can recognize a stroke by asking three simple questions:
S *Ask the individual to SMILE.
T *Ask the person to TALK and SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE (Coherently) (i.e. Tortilla Soup)
R *Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS. 
If he or she has trouble with ANY ONE of these tasks, call emergency number immediately and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher. New Sign of a Stroke Stick out Your Tongue!
If the tongue is crooked, that is also an indication of a stroke.
