Mini Strokes (TIAs): Don't Ignore Symptoms, Act FAST

Mini Strokes (TIAs): Don't Ignore Symptoms, Act FAST

We don’t get many second chances. This one could save your life. A TIA or transient ischemic stroke is a mini-stroke. Symptoms usually go away within twenty-four hours and you feel fine again. But if you don’t get to a stroke center or hospital fast, you risk a full-fledged stroke that can change your life forever. Don’t take that chance. Contact National Stroke Association at 1-800-STROKES, or visit stroke.org. and find out more about recognizing stroke symptoms fast.
Do it now. While there’s still time.

    change your diet. reduce ur salt intake, exercise, quit smoking. REDUCE UR BLOOD PRESSURE… most likely you have High cholesterol… 1.see if your body have equal strength (shoulders/arms test), look in mirror at ur face to see if something is weird (drooping)

    I suffered 3 T.I.A strokes in my sleep. All i remember was feeling like i was drunk and then lights out. My friend woke me up off the living room floor and asked me if i wanted to go to my room? I was awakened by my boss calling me to see why i was not in work, and i had told him it was sunday! It really changed my life. My class A license was revoked and i had to change jobs. If you have high B/P get it down NOW!!! Dont drink alcohol or eat fast food!!

    My mother suddenly felt dizzy, her entire body went dead (she couldn’t move at all. She said that she didn’t see the room spinning but she felt that her brain moved inside her head. I had to sit her up because she couldn’t move. Then she started to throw up. She Threw up for like 2 or 3 hours without stopping. Her vision was blurry on one eye and she couldn’t walk normally (she just walked to one side like something was pulling her). Doctors did all kinds of test.

    thats signs of an anurism. u need to go to a doctor to be checked out and probably put on blood thinner being it is the back of your neck. take 1 asperin a day to keep your blood thin. ask for doctor about cumidin. the is a stroke related. just trying to hell you. thanks.

  17. Donny C on December 15, 2019 at 5:43 pm

    lol, its gonna be hard for some one your age to have a stroke…but i can be wrong.
    1. Do you have any Heart condition
    2. Any blood condition (thick blood)
    3. Did you just get home from hospital for a surgery
    4. Do you use cocaine/crack
    5. do you have any drug/food reaction

    I had a TIA months ago due to mild Traumatic Injury. I couldn’t understand what was happening to me, but now i know that it was a TIA. Should i go to the hospital or to a doctor?…it’s been a while ago and i don’t know what to do!
