Hello! My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with the reply momentarily.
What did her CT scan or MRI show?
Was a colored doppler study of neck arteries (carotid arteries) done?
The symptoms you have described may be transient ischemic attack (TIA). This is also termed as transient neurological attack (TNA). This is also called as mini stroke. In stroke there is some neurological deficit for some time while in TIA, it is a transient neurological change which revert very soon.
The tiny blood clots may go very soon. Even big blood clots would disappear but will take a longer time. So it is the size of the blood clot which will determine the time to disappear.
She needs to meticulously control her blood pressure and diabetes. These will prevent the further attacks. Also she may need aspirin or Clopidogrel (which I am sure her physician had prescribed), which will prevent further episodes.
Please feel free for your follow up questions.
I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.
