Had a stroke.: You have had a stroke, one of the three tia's were a small stroke as you have residual weakness. You have continual headaches and the concern is for recurrent cerebral events, suggest an evaluation with your neurologist.

Get help: Prevention is critical as you are at high risk, and a major stroke is likely if this is not addressed. Aspirin will not be adequate, and you need to uncover the reasons for your cerebrovascular events asap. See a neurologist soon.

Yes: A good stroke neurologist can help you sort out the reason for you symptoms and prescribe a treatment plan to prevent further problems.
