What are the symptoms of a mini-stroke?

Same as a stroke: A mini-stroke or TIA (transient ischemic attack) is a stroke. However, it is a stroke that goes away, in as much as a few minutes to as long as 24 hours.

If you continue having palpitations and sweats, the best way is to see a healthcare provider to rule out organic disease. Once you are determined not to have actual heart or lung disease, or infection, then you will need a psychiatrist to help manage stress/anxiety. ...Read more

How long should I wait after catheter ablation for svt to smoke weed again or should I just quit? I smoked one hit and felt symptoms of a mini stroke

The term "mini stroke" is often used to describe such symptoms when they are transient. However, these episodes are still red flags that a major stroke will follow. If using marijuana contributes to irregular heart rhythm and stroke, then it is reasonable to quit. ...Read more
