Re: No Answers

An evaluation by a hematologist is also a good idea, as some people have factors in their blood that predispose them to clots and they require more aggressive treatment than just aspirin to prevent further strokes. I would aggressively search for the cause of these. TIAs don't show up on any tests. They often precede a full blown stroke, so TIAs should always be taken seriously and the cause identified, hopefully before a stroke occurs.
You might consider the Mayo clinic if you can't get answers locally.
