If you have been diagnosed with mini-strokes (do they call it transient ischemia?) I think it only natural to have high-anxiety, panic, grief and insomnia. Remember, nervous-breakdown never was a true medical term. It sounds like you have a scary Dx, and they can be so much more scary at first, until you get more info on treatment and prognosis. Talking to a professional would probably alleviate a lot of this anxiety, and I hope you have a good relationship with your neurologist, so they can help you as much as possible. Good luck & keep us posted!
