Diagnosing Stroke or Another Medical Condition

As part of diagnosing stroke, a healthcare provider will consider other conditions that can cause similar signs or symptoms. Some of these conditions that doctors will normally consider before making a stroke diagnosis include:
 
  • Bleeding just outside the brain, such as from a subarachnoid hemorrhage
  • Brain tumor
  • Abscess, which is a collection of pus
  • Low blood sugar (hypoglycemia)
  • High blood sugar (hyperglycemia).
