Is TIA stress related?
I've endured extreme psychological stress at my workplace due to a sexual harassment complaint against another employee.  My primary care physician diagnosed me with having a TIA.  My question is TIA related to all the stress I've encountered at my workplace regarding this situation?

It is my understanding that TIA is not typically caused by stress per say, but rather things like high blood pressure, abnormal blood clotting or risk factors like smoking.  I suspect that the stress you were under may be a contributing factor to your TIA (as stress can manifest itself in physical symptoms such as high blood pressure), but was not necessarily the main cause.

It sounds like you need to have a discussion with your doctor about this to find out what the cause may have been in your case. I am sure your doctor took a complete medical history of you, but perhaps he/she needs to communicate with you more directly about what all that information means in terms of your health.
