    After 29 years i just found out through facebook post that i got TIA. Cos i saw all the symptoms got similarity of what i actually feel. I feel shy whenever it attacks my health cos my friends and family use to see me like dancing and after a few minutes i am ok so most of the people who didn’t know me thinking i was just joking and trying to be funny. But i just pretend i am ok and laughing with them but deep inside i know i am not well. And need a treatment in my condition. Do i just need to go to a clinic and just ask a medicine for this?. Or need to confine my self to a hospital?.
