bigger issue.namely, stroke. " " tia's-- or transient ischemic attacks --happen when a blood clot or tight vessel cuts off blood flow to the brain for a short time. tia's only last a few minutes, but they're a red flag for future stroke. (dr. henri vaitkevicius, neurologist, boston's brigham and women's hospital) "about 10 percent of patients who have had tia's will have a stroke within 90 days." signs and symptoms of tiaia are sudden and the same a a those of stroke: numbness or weakness on one side of the body, confusion or trble speaking, trouble with vision, dizziness or loss of balance or severe headache with no known cause. (dr. ali sultan, neurosurgeon, brigham and women's hospital, boston) "it's extremely important to take these signs seriously, even though they resolve and you're back to baseline, it's extremely important to take this seriously and seek medical attention as soon as possible." depending on the underlying cause, treatment for tia's can range from

lifestyle changes, such as stopping smoking, eating a art healthy diet and exercising, to medications that prevent clots or lower cholesterol --or - as in jon petersrs's case-- surgery.
