Even if the suspicious symptoms quickly disappeared on their own, you should not think that there is no longer any danger to your health. Don't put off seeing your doctor if you have any concerns.
Contrary to popular belief, problems with the heart and blood vessels are not only the scourge of pensioners. Moreover, even young and apparently healthy people can face a heart attack or stroke.
The same applies to "micro strokes". Usually, this word means transient ischemic attack. This condition is somewhat similar to a stroke. Basically, a TIA is a short-term interruption of blood flow to part of the brain, spinal cord, or retina. At the same time, the brain often copes with unpleasant symptoms on its own in a day.
However, this does not mean at all that a micro stroke is not dangerous: according to statistics, during the first 10 days after such an attack and without treatment, the risk of repeated vascular events and even a real stroke increases many times over.
Let's figure out what symptoms of a transient ischemic attack are distinguished by doctors.
