Hello. Welcome to JA. I believe you meant TIA. TIA stands for transient ischemic attack. It happens as a " pre stroke " condition as it is loss of blood flow that is too brief to cause permanent damage. But they happen in anticipation of an upcoming stroke. Please get back to me to discuss this further. Ask question and I will reply.
