TIA - "drip"

You're caring for the garden. Suddenly, you lose some feeling in right arm and leg. You must support yourself against a tree to keep from falling. You try to talk to your daughter who is sunning himself, but the words are only to babble. So, after a few minutes, the symptoms disappear, and you can resume gardening.

What you have experienced is a transient event that we colloquially refer to as a "drip" and that doctors call a TIA-attack.

TIA stands for "transient ischemic attack" - a temporary bout of decreased blood supply to parts of the brain. Ignoring this episode could have serious consequences for your health.

Although a TIA-attack does not last as long and does not leave any permanent damage, it is an event you do not have to deny. About a third of those who have a TIA attack, gets a stroke in the future. A TIA-attack is both a warning and an opportunity. A warning that a stroke can occur, and an opportunity to bring about measures that prevents a stroke.
