Many injuries are temporary and will heal with rest. Other runners can often give basic advice as most have suffered from injuries from time to time. Reading up on an injury and following advice given often helps but for persistent conditions professional advice should be sought.

Recognising a Stroke
Sometimes symptoms of a stroke are difficult to identify. Unfortunately, the lack of awareness spells disaster. The stroke victim may suffer severe brain damage when people nearby fail to recognize the symptoms of a stroke.
Now doctors say a bystander can recognize a stroke by asking three simple questions:
S *Ask the individual to SMILE.
T *Ask the person to TALK and SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE (Coherently)
(I.e. It is sunny out today.)
R *Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS.
If he or she has trouble with ANY ONE of these tasks, call emergency number immediately and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher.
Stick out Your Tongue
If the tongue is 'crooked', if it goes to one side, or the other that is also an indication of a stroke.
