stroke with negative tests

I just returned home after 7 days in the hospital, 3 days ICU and 4 days Neurology. I was discharged with a diagnoses of a TIA with right sided weakness and the theapists called and said the diagnosis for treatment is a CVA with right sided weakness but all my tests ct, mri,mra, corotid ultrasound etc.. were all negative. IS THIS POSSIBLE?  Also I start physical,occupational, and speech therapy tomorrow. I have fallen and hit my face on a sofa arm and am very unstable and speech comes and goes. Then I sometimes am unsure of my surroundings.  IS THIS ALSO POSSIBLE with my diagnosis?

Even with normal results from diagnostics done, there are risk factors that play a very important rule in stroke which include:  a family history of stroke, heart attack or TIA, being age 55 or older, high blood pressure, hgh cholesterol, cigarette smoking,diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular disease, previous stroke, high levels of homocysteine, or birth control pills or other hormone therapy.

A stroke occurs when there's a problem with the amount of blood in your brain: too little blood or ischemic stroke and too much blood or  hemorrhagic stroke. Complications of stroke include: pralysis or loss of muscle movement, dfficulty talking or swallowing;
aphasia, a condition in which a person has difficulty expressing thoughts through language, memory loss or troubles with understanding.

Take care and regards.
