    It is difficult to make a diagnosis over the Internet. However, one has wonder if you had a TIA, if the ONLY symptom was to stop breathing. TIAs usually involve weakness or numbness of the arms and legs, difficulty speaking or visual complaints. Passing out is more likely to be an abnooraml heart beat. Did they test your heart? Have you seen both a neurologist and cardiologist? I hope this helps. Good Luck
    After your stroke you may be experiencing a new normal, but remember what George Eliot said- It is never too late to be what you might have been. You still can achieve new goals.
