May is Stroke Awareness Month. Pam over at Pink Pearl Girl's Migraine World wrote a great blog entry about stroke, so instead of repeating everything she wrote, I'll link you to it.
Migraine symptoms can often mimic stroke, so I'll remind all my fellow migraineurs out there to have any new symptoms checked out immediately by a doctor. If your symptoms mimic a stroke and are new to you, don't hesitate - call 911 and get help. I had a scary experience of this myself last month, and while I turned out to be okay, I don't for a minute regret having DBF call 911 for me. When dealing with the brain, you don't want to mess around!
