Signs And Symptoms Of A Minor Stroke And Their Treatment?
at the doctor’s morning, what is a mini stroke, what are the symptoms and what is the first treatment? Then what can get worse and when, thank you doctor.
A mini stroke is also known as a light stroke or TIA (transient ischemic attack). This condition occurs due to a transient decrease in blood flow to certain areas of the brain, resulting in short-lasting (<24 hours) and non-permanent neurological dysfunction.
Symptoms that occur are very similar to strokes such as:
Talk pelo or cedal, and others
Usually the symptoms do not last long, only up to 1-2 hours and then disappear. In patients with attacks lasting more than 3 hours, more than 50% of them have brain damage on MRI.
Then, about 15-26% of stroke patients have experienced TIA. After a TIA, 10-15% will have a stroke within 3 months, and the majority will have a stroke within 48 hours of a TIA. Therefore TIA is also called a danger sign of stroke.
Therefore, if you find the symptoms of a TIA, it is better to immediately be taken to a doctor, especially a neurologist. It takes a complete history and direct examination by a doctor to determine the condition. In addition, additional examinations such as CT scans and others may be needed. Therapy will be given according to what is needed, including lifestyle changes and the doctor may suggest hospitalization for the observation process.
I hope this helps
