Answer

In contrast, a nonfocal TNA is a temporary event of diffuse, nonlocalizing, cerebral symptoms that set in suddenly and resolve quickly. Symptoms of nonfocal TNAs may include the following:

  • Altered consciousness

  • Nonrotatory dizziness

  • Positive visual phenomena

  • Paresthesias

  • Bilateral weakness

  • Generalized feelings of unwellness with a clinical suspicion of neurologic disease
