Migraines/stroke/TIA: Migraines are generally considered due to blood vessel constriction in the brain followed by blood vessel dilation.There is also an electrochemical component in the brain.As a result, some migraines can-with or without pain-cause temporary loss of higher brain functions such as speech.Tia's are similar, causing temporary loss, but strokes can cause permanent loss - all with or w/out headaches.
