Monty Don, 53, woke up next to his wife and didn’t feel well. He felt like he was having a stroke. It felt like he had a chasm in his head as if there was a section of it that wasn’t working. He felt like he couldn’t speak or move his arm but he could.
He didn’t have full control over his movements. As he walked, he felt as though he was tipping over. He fell so unwell, he thought he was dying. Six weeks later, a brain scan confirmed a blockage in one of the four arteries leading to the brain. He had had a mini stroke.
A mini stroke is a transient ischemic attack (TIA), which is caused by temporary disruption in the blood supply to the brain. Symptoms include numbness or weakness in the face, arms an legs, memory loss, visual disturbance and speech disturbance.
The effects last between a few minutes and a few hours. Symptoms fully resolve within 24 hours.

A mini stroke can be a warning sign that you’re at increased risk of having a full stroke in the future. Monty Don  is 65 now and hasn’t had any similar episodes to the first one.
