FAQ


How are a Stroke and Transient Ischemic Attack Different?

If your doctor tells you that you suffered a transient ischemic attack, you might be wondering what that is. Some doctors refer to this occurrence, usually called TIA, as a mini-stroke. TIA is a short stroke, but it does not leave a patient permanently injured. It occurs during a period of 24 hours or less. So a patient may show symptoms of a stroke, such as slurred speech or dizziness, but the symptoms pass within a short period of time.

TIA is caused by the same process as a regular stroke. Blood supply is blocked from the brain which halts the functions performed by that part of the brain. This is typically caused by a clot that forms in a blood vessel within the brain, but it can form elsewhere and travel to the area. Like stroke, TIA is also sometimes caused by bleeding or spasms in the brain, but this is rare.

TIA can develop rapidly or slowly over time. The event usually lasts only a few minutes, but the symptoms can last up to a day. It is important to have symptoms evaluated as soon as possible, even if they pass quickly. Treat symptoms of TIA the same as you would traditional stroke symptoms. It is possible for TIA to occur more than once and there are occasions in which they are the precursor for a traditional permanent stroke. Remember, there is no guarantee that TIA will resolve itself during the event. What you are experiencing could be a traditional stroke, so you will want to behave as if this is the case and err on the side of caution.

Symptoms of TIA are similar to those of traditional stroke and include:

Loss of vision
Dizziness
Slurred speech
Paralysis, usually on one side of the body
Drooling
Headache
Numb or tingling sensation
Inability to understand simple commands

Risk factors for TIA are also similar to stroke. Following a TIA episode, your doctor will likely recommend things you can do to reduce your risk for future incidents. This might include prescription medication, as well as dietary changes, exercise, smoking cessation, and stress reduction. If you have a family history of stroke or related diseases, your doctor might want to put you on preventative medication that helps prevent blood clotting, even if you have not yet experienced full-blown stroke or TIA. He or she might also recommend medications to control other risk factors, including high blood pressure, cholesterol, or diabetes.
