You must have had a TIA. Now you should ensure to keep hypertension under check, eat a normal balanced diet and take blood thinners to help with the ischemia. To improve blood flow to the ischemic areas plavix is indicated. The drug is used to prevent heart attacks, strokes, and to treat peripheral vascular disease and claudication.
