How are you? Transient ischemic attack (TIA) occurs when the blood flow to a part of the brain stops for a brief period of time but the blockage breaks up quickly and dissolved. High blood pressure and family history of stroke are major risk for TIAs and stroke. And TIAs are a warning sign that stroke may indeed occur. It is highly recommended that you go for regular follow-up with your attending physician for proper evaluation and management of risk factors to prevent any recurrence of stroke. Take care and do keep us posted.
