  • Sudden weakness
  • Clumsiness in limbs
  • Slurred speech
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Numbness
  • Dizziness
  • Loss of balance
  • Pins and needles
  • Double vision or temporary loss of vision

Loss of consciousness is very uncommon, and headaches are not a sign of a Transient Ischaemic Attack or Stroke.

Though these symptoms will go away very quickly, it is best to obtain medical attention quickly within 60 minutes is ideal. A doctor will perform a medical examination and possibly an ultrasound test.

Around one third of people who have suffered from TIA will have a stroke at some point in the future, so many people regard a TIA as an early warning sign.

Medication for Transient Ischaemic Attack will first of all be Aspirin, which thins the blood and should restore a healthy flow to the brain.

You may also be prescribed Clopidogrel, a Blood Clot Inhibitor, and Ticlopidine, used in patients allergic to aspirin. Those with a higher risk factor include:
