In brief: Complex issue

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.
