When To Call A Professional
Call your doctor immediately whenever anyone has symptoms of stroke, even if these symptoms last only a few minutes. TIAs can be a warning sign that a stroke is about to happen and they require prompt attention.
Without treatment, having a history of one or more TIAs significantly increases your risk of stroke compared to someone who has never had a TIA.
