In brief: Can be subtle
It's best to discuss your exact symptoms in person with your doctor. Tias are focal neurologic deficits that last <24 hours.
Typical examples are a visual field cut (like "a curtain cutting across your vision"), inabilty to talk or understand words, weakness in the hand, arm, foot, or leg - but a TIA can be subtle and hard to recognize too.
