What is Transient Ischemic Attack?

A Transient Ischemic Attack (TIA), often referred to as a mini-stroke, occurs when there is a temporary disruption of blood flow to the brain. In many cases, no immediate medical intervention is required, as the symptoms typically resolve on their own. However, a TIA can serve as a warning sign for a more serious ischemic stroke, underscoring the importance of identifying and addressing its underlying cause.

Recognising the Symptoms of Transient Ischemic Attack

Common symptoms indicating a transient ischemic attack:

  • Weakness on one side of the body
  • Limb numbness
  • Balance and coordination issues
  • Lightheadedness
  • Inability to speak
