Hole in the heart migraine connection

I found out when I was 71 (now 75) that I have a hole in my heart.  I had what appeared to be a stroke but nothing showed on MRI's.  I have migraine with aura.  Neurologist thought perhaps I had a hemiplegic attack which caused the strokes. I was unconcious for many hours and had 3 or 4 episodes whilst in hospital.   Is there anything I can do other than fill the hole that will help me?  I have chronic vertigo too.  That was diagnosed when I was 69 years.    I still get the auras without headache most of the time.
