Not consistent.: "Salon stroke" syndrome (vertebrobasilar insufficiency) usually doesn't cause floaters - it causes other symptoms u don't have: dizziness, double vision, weakness in the knees, & "crumple attacks" (loss of muscle control) that precede the stroke. "Floaters" usually point to a problem in the cornea or retina of the eye, not the brain. See an ophthalmologist or neurologist soon to confirm diagnosis.
