TIA (Transient Ischemic Attack)
A TIA (Transient Ischemic Attack) is a temporary closure of a blood vessel in the brain. The closure is caused by a blood clot. That blood clot dissolves again. As a result, the symptoms last no longer than half an hour, sometimes a little longer. With a TIA there are no lasting consequences. It can be a precursor to a cerebral infarction with permanent brain damage. Therefore always take a TIA seriously. For symptoms, call 112 immediately. The signals from a TIA, cerebral infarction and bleeding are the same. The 3 most important signals are: a crooked mouth, confused speech and a paralyzed arm. If the symptoms disappear completely quickly or if you afterwards think that you had symptoms, it is important to go to the doctor the same day.
