Signs Of A Mini Stroke

Signs Of A Mini Stroke

Nearly 10 percent of the strokes are always followed by TIA (transient ischemic attack), also known as a mini stroke. A person who has had one or more TIA in his life is also 10 times more vulnerable and likely to have a stroke. As a result, TIA is considered as one of the important stroke warning signs.

It is imperative that a person never ignore the signs of a mini stroke. Instead he should always seek medical assistance the moment the signs appear.

When you notice symptoms that are similar to a stroke, grab the phone without delay to call 911. When a person is having a stroke every single second counts. Invariably it is the delay in seeking medical assistance that causes stroke-related disability and death.
