According to the Cleveland Clinic, a mini-stroke, also known as a transient ischemic attack (TIA), occurs when a blood clot temporarily clogs an artery and blood flow to the brain is restricted.

TIA’s do not cause lasting damage to the brain, but could be a warning that you could have a stroke in the future.
