Hailey Bieber says she underwent heart surgery after ‘scary’ stroke

The model also shared a lighter moment, saying paramedics overestimated her age while she was in the ambulance. “There was a funny moment where they called the hospital to explain what they were bringing and they were like, ‘I have a 30-year-old woman,’ and I was like, ‘I 25. I had to make sure they didn’t age me five years for no reason, you know.”

Hailey said by the time she reached Eisenhower Medical Center in Rancho Mirage, Calif., she had no symptoms. She said they performed scans, which showed she “had a small blood clot in my brain, which they labeled and classified as something called a TIA.”

According to the National Library of Medicine, a TIA, or transient ischemic attack, is also known as a “mini-stroke.” It happens when the blood supply to part of the brain is briefly blocked. Symptoms include numbness or weakness, especially on one side of the body, difficulty speaking, dizziness, loss of balance, and difficulty walking.
