TIA and Minor Stroke


In this section you can find out about the experience of transient ischaemic attack (TIA) and minor stroke by seeing and hearing people share their personal stories on film. Our researchers travelled all around the UK to talk to 33 people in their own homes. Find out what people said about issues such as symptoms, diagnosis and impact on work and family. We hope you find the information helpful and reassuring.
You can start viewing topics by clicking 'Next Topic' above, or selecting from the list on the left. You can also view 'People's Profiles' from the tab above.
