Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Hello Dr Phil.

Yes I am struggling with my right side

Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 2 years ago.
This absolutely could be related to the TIA
However, if the symptoms persist it is not technically a TIA it is a stroke
TIA symptoms resolve in 24 hours by definition
I would make sure you are on max medical therapy....aspirin or plavix, statin, blood pressure control
no smoking or alcohol, healthy diet and exercise.
The only thing to do is to prevent more damage in the future
