A stroke is when blood flow to part of your brain suddenly stops. Without that blood flow, brain cells begin to die within minutes. So if you think you're having a stroke call 911 immediately. Learn more about strokes and their symptoms.
A transient ischemic attack (TIA) — sometimes called a "mini stroke" — can cause some of the same symptoms as a stroke, but is temporary and doesn't cause permanent damage. But a TIA is a warning sign that often happens before a stroke and should not be ignored. If you think you've had a TIA, talk with your doctor or call us at (801) 507-9800 to set up an appointment with one of our stroke specialists.
In this video, Diane Blackburn describes her experience having a stroke at age 44 and then her remarkable recovery.
