transient ischaemic attacks

Disturbances of body function lasting for less than 24 hours and caused by localized nervous system defects. These occur because of temporary interruption or reduction of the blood supply to part of the brain. There may be visual loss, weakness in an arm or leg, numbness, speech difficulty or confusion. Transient ischaemic attacks are a warning of the danger of STROKE and should always be investigated.
