In brief: Rule out bleeding
The first thing coming to mind with this symptom complex is subarachnoid hemorrhage (sah).
That means bleeding into the fluid spaces overlying the surface of the brain & spinal cord. Sah is very serious & often a warning sign of potentially fatal problems. See your doctor immediately!

In brief: Need more detail
This ? Is best answered by 1's own doc or thru micropayment w/ neurologis in real time as more info needed e.
g.Location of the stroke, whether other meds were given, was there trauma?Also, it's unclear by the question whether by "mini-stroke" u mean a lacunar infarct(small stroke) or a TIA (a transient "stroke" that resolved quickly).Pain back of neck may or may not be related to the "mini-stroke".
