More on Mini-Strokes

PITTSBURGH. Earlier this week Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon suffered a Transient Ischemic Attack (TIA) or "Mini-Stroke," causing many to be concerned about Sharon's, causing open speculation on the future of the newly formed Kadima Party.

TIA's often share many of the same symptoms as a full-blown stroke: loss of memory, slurred speech, paralysis, but the symptoms are temporary because they are caused by temporary blockages of oxygen to the brain.

Occurance of a TIA does indicate a higher risk for a full-blown stroke. In September, I highlighted an article on TIA's. Coretta Scott King reportedly suffered 2 TIAs before suffering a full-blown stroke this past summer. and Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada suffered TIAs as well.
