T.I.A., Transient Ischemic Attacks, can develop unexpectedly. The symptoms are similar to a stroke depending on which part of the brain that is being affected.
Sometimes it’s difficult to determine a T.I.A. or if the body is experiencing normal aging because the affects are similar, such as:
- Numbness, or tingling on one side of the body
- Disrupted vision
- Difficult speaking and/or understanding words
- Dizziness or trouble walking
Whether it’s T.I.A. or a symptom of aging Life Alert will be on hand to assist you. Life Alert will summon paramedics and stay on the line until help arrives.
A recent Life Alert member writes:
My husband had a T.I.A. and Life Alert called an ambulance service and notified our family members of the emergency. What a blessing it was that I didn’t have to do all that calling. Thanks.
