should be OK then, as long as they don't have to report TIAs as a pre-exisiting condition for any kind of insurance or anything n the future! glad it all turne out OK...

well, they did all the tests before we realized she had eaten the 'funny' cookies so that was water under the bridge. the dr. said it was a small tia. it did not seem like it would help any to tell 'the rest of the story' so she didn't. thanks!

you may need to tell, just so they don't feel obilgated to continue with more workup! docs don't normally inform law enforcement about things like this, and the workup under the circumstances was totally appropriate.
