A new study about mini strokes suggests while the symptoms may be milder, there can be serious consequences if these small strokes go untreated.
Mini strokes happen when the brain is deprived of oxygen for a short time.
Because the symptoms are so mild, they can go away in 24 hours and many people don't seek medical attention.
Researchers found the disabilities of patients who received no medical intervention after mini strokes deteriorated significantly.
Complete findings from the study can be found in the American Heart Association's Stroke Journal.
