A selfie video that a 49-year-old Toronto-area woman took to show numbness and slurred speech she was experiencing, helped doctors to diagnose her as having a mini-stroke.

Stacey Yepes knew that the numbness in her face and the trouble she had speaking was not merely stress-related as doctors had suggested.

When the symptoms reappeared while driving her car a few days later, Yepes pulled over and hit record on her cell phone to capture a selfie video of what she was experiencing.
