Specializes in Pediatric Neurology

Transients events can be due to heart defects, arrhythmia, blood pressure, blood sugar, drug effects, seizure, migraine, or blood vessel disorders. It would be important to have a thorough medical and neurological evaluation. Their may be genetic factors involved, especially defects in cholesterol and lipid metabolism. May be a high risk for completed stroke or even death.
