TIA_whats next?

Hi

My mother had a TIA a couple of weeks back. I have two main concerns that are not really being addressed by doctors. My first concern is over the "prognosis" after a TIA. What is likely to happen?, Is there likely to be a stroke or more TIA's. None of these questions have been answered by the doctors. She has had headaches and dizziness since  - is this normal?

My second concern is over the identification of the reasons behind the TIA. The doctors have said that "high blood" presure is the main cause. Is this an adequate diagnosis, or should more assessment be undertaken to pinpoint what caused the TIA?

Any help would be really appreciated
thanks
Rondub.
