Some strokes are very serious and can cause a coma, or may lead to someone dying. This guide looks at the care given to someone in a coma, and how end-of-life care can support someone who's unlikely to recover.
A stroke can lead to seizures. This can happen soon after the stroke, or up to two years or more later. Having a seizure doesn't mean you will be diagnosed with epilepsy. Find out how epilepsy is diagnosed and treated, and first aid for a seizure. Plus driving after a seizure.
