A:
Embolic stroke is a condition occurred when blood flow to a part of the brain stops. It is a type of ischemic stroke. Ischemic stroke may occur when an artery to the brain becomes blocked.

Several symptoms can help you judge whether you have embolic stroke or not, they are: temporary paralysis, numbness in the limbs or either side of the face, walking problems, speaking problems and so on.
