Having a stroke could impact the quality of your life.
Researchers followed stroke patients for five years and found that people who had milder strokes lost about two quality years of life, and a severe stroke can shave off almost four and a half years.
Researchers say there need to be improvements in stroke treatment and prevention.
Stroke is the fourth leading cause of death in the United States.
