Mini-Strokes

Transient ischemic attacks (TIAs) are commonly referred to as "mini-strokes." They occur when blood flow to the brain is briefly interrupted, often lasting anywhere from a few minutes to 30 minutes. The usual signs of a stroke are present, such as numbness or tingling in an arm or leg. If you believe you or someone else is having a mini-stroke, seek immediate medical care, as about one-third of people who have a TIA are at risk for a full stroke.
