Symptoms of a mini-stroke, that's spelled m-i-n-i. Some of the symptoms are slurred speech or confusion. Numbness in one side or another in their limbs. Could have some weakness in their facial area, particular in one side or another. Normally present with a headache. Difficulty focusing. Trying to say what they really mean. Trying to make the right words come out at the right time. Thinking of it and being able to speak it becomes difficult. They can have blurred vision, unable to walk without maybe purposely trying to pull one leg in front of another or not being able to walk at all. The blood pressure would initially go up, but it could decrease to normal or below after the stroke has occurred. There's an uneasiness about their feelings. They're not too sure what they're feeling, but they're not feeling at ease. They could cry just spontaneously, without knowing why. Their nerves seem to be on edge. They may become incontinent where they wet themselves without even knowing it. These are just some of the symptoms of a mini stroke.
