Transient Ischaemic Attack
A Transient Ischaemic Attack or TIA has similar symptoms to a stroke but these pass quickly. The symptoms may be present for a few minutes or a number of hours and then completely disappear. This is because the interruption to the blood supply to the brain is only temporary.
Anyone who thinks that they have experienced a TIA should call the emergency services or consult their GP urgently, as it can be a warning sign of a more major stroke to come.
