TIA or stroke

Detailed Answer:
Hi there

Thanks for the query

It's possible that you could have experienced symptoms of impending stroke or Transient Ischaemic Attack (TIA).

I suggest that you get yourself examined by a Physician to rule this out. You may need a Head CT Scan to look for brain bleeds or clots.

Avoid salty diet, fatty or sweet food. Eat healthy. Avoid smoking or alcohol.

I hope I have answered your query.

I will be available to answer your follow up queries.
