I am 63 and just had my third TIA yesterday morning. I could not see anything below a horizontal line through the middle of my eye during the first two. Yesterday I was drinking my morning coffee when I felt very dizzy and suddenly noticed my lower lip and the tip of my tongue and my left hand tingling. I managed to get to the aspirin, took one and laid down. This TIA lasted about 20 minutes and I now know I should have called 911. I drove to the ER at our local hospital and underwent tests.Today, I have a little lingering tingle in my lip but all else is fine.You and I need to drop our pride and call 911 at the very first sign of another TIA. Do not wait for the symptoms to fade as I did. The only other recommendation the ER doctor gave was to take an aspirin a day from now on. Good luck.
