The FAST test The Face-Arm-Speech-Time (FAST) test lists the main symptoms to look out for: Face. Has the person's face fallen on one side? Can the person smile? Has their mouth or eye drooped? Arms. Can the person raise both arms and keep them there? Speech. Is their speech slurred? Time. It's time to call 999 if you see one or more of these signs. “FAST will pick up 90% of strokes,” says Dr Tony Rudd, stroke programme director at the Royal College of Physicians’ Clinical Effectiveness and Evaluation Unit. “If people have one or more of these symptoms, they should call 999.” i would aviod coffee all caffine if u think u mayb avin a stroke as 1 cup of coffee brought my mums on
