Transient Ischemic Attack (TIA)

Two days ago I had what was probably a TIA. My brain and mouth could not coordinate to speak. I couldn't read, writing looked like Arabic. I lost some vision. My husband gave me two aspirin, we went to the ER. I started to get better after the aspirin and was much better at the ER. Instead of leaving, I staid and was admitted to the hosp. I thought maybe the jig was up for my paleo diet. I gave full disclosure of my eating habits. I'm good weight for my height and age. Blood tests showed 99HDL, LDL 293. Many tests ensued. Nothing was found to have caused attack. It was like a passing comet that left no trace. My carotid arteries were almost clear of plaque. Has anyone else had experience with TIA's?

Sounds like some sort of issue with your myelin sheath

Did they do an MRI and did it find anything?

The reason I ask is because sometimes other entities can present similarly. An example that comes to mind PRES (posterior reversible encephalopathy) or maybe even a demyelinating disease. Best to continue follow up with your doctor. It seems strange to have a Tia with no other risk factors.

Your LDL seems pretty high also.
