Question by sylvia s: Which side of the body do strokes affect the most? How do you know?
This question comes as I been watching my Dad who is in a nursing home after he had a stroke on his left side of body over 5 years ago. I been told that strokes normally affect only the right side but why is the left in my father’s predictament? I mean I don’t fully understand how it occurs. All the research I done confuses me. Can anyone who truly knows their medical terminology help and better explain? Thanks

I’m no doctor, but my common sense tells me the left side would be more common because the heart is on that side. And usually when something goes wrong there, the left arm seems to go numb
