If you realise that you or a loved one are showing mini stroke symptoms, call 999 immediately.
Even if the symptoms start to subside while you are waiting for an ambulance, it is important that you still see a doctor.
With most individuals experiencing a stroke not long after a TIA, it is imperative that if you believe you have previously shown these symptoms, you seek urgent medical assistance. Make an appointment with your GP and they will be able to refer you to the appropriate assessments, if necessary.
You should see a specialist within seven days, but if your GP believes that you are at a high risk of having a stroke, they will organise for you to see someone within 24 hours.
