In brief: TIA

A transient ischemic attack (TIA) is caused by the transient blockage of a blood vessel in the brain.
The symptoms depend on the blood vessel being blocked and can be difficult to recognize because they can be very variable. For example, symptoms can include weakness, numbness, confusion, difficulty speaking, changes in vision, dizziness, etc.
