Transient Ischemic Attack or TIA is often referred to as a mini-stroke. It is a temporary episode of neurologic dysfunction which means something abnormal occurs in the body’s nervous system (brain, spinal cord and nerves).
TIA is similar to a stroke in that it involves a loss of blood flow to the brain. Unlike a stroke, the symptoms of TIA subside usually within a few minutes or a few hours.

A transient ischemic attack occurs as the result of an ischemia. An ischemia is a loss of blood flow or a restriction in the supply of blood to tissues of the body.
Symptoms of TIA can vary widely from person to person. The most common symptoms of a transient ischemic attack include:
Although TIA is often referred to as a mini-stroke, it is not a stroke. A TIA will not cause solid damage to the brain like a stroke. Transient ischemic attacks may be a warning sign for a stroke if left untreated. In fact, nearly 1 in 3 people who experience a TIA eventually suffer a stroke. If you experience a transient ischemic attack, it’s an opportunity to see a health care professional so a stroke can be avoided.
