Thank you for posting your query.

TIA (transient ischemic attacks) are episodes of focal neurological deficits such as weakness, numbness, language dysfunction, etc, which recover completely within 24 hours, mostly within one hour. Since you have persistent symptoms, they are not due to TIA.
You require a detailed evaluation including serum vitamin B12 assay, thyroid profile, psychological assessment, etc to make a diagnosis. I am sure you would improve with proper treatment.

Best wishes,
