  • have you been tested for anti phosphorus lipidemia? My mother was at a point where she was having a tia like attack every time she sat up. It was constant. however there was no clinical evidence. (she was in the hospital when this occured) Finally, her pcp and neurologist sat down with her daily mri results and found very minor changes. She was having tia's, but they were so minor that without the daily readings they could not be detected. Also, I have watched her have a major stroke. The damage did not appear on any clinical results for almost 2 years. I found that we are the best advocates for our health. If you know you are having a tia, convince your dr to treat it. or find a dr who will.
