Hi and thanks for this query.

I am so sorry to hear about these TIA episodes. TIA is the greatest single risk factor for future stroke. The causes are exactly the same as those of stroke. The only difference is the extend and duration of the symptoms. Stroke can be caused by problems in the blood vessels, blood itself or other diseases. High blood, heart problems, diabetes, bad lipids in blood etc are among the ost common causes.

Your doctors should actively look for these risk factors and address the else you will come down with a more concerning stroke. Don't mean to scare you but this is what i call straight talk

There are no warning symptoms, it happens...address the risk factors, reduce the risk and stay TIA/stroke free as long as possible.

I wish you you well as you get to dissect and address the hidden risk factors. If you have more questions, I have got answers to provide, so keep them coming.
