My mother was at a store recently and was walking up the steps. Next she found herself sitting on the steps being assisted by the clerk and doesn't remember anything about what happened. She said she had no warning signs, no dizziness and no pains. She asked the clerk if she was alert and she said yes but she doesn't remember anything about how she ended up on the steps. No headache either and she felt she got in her car and drove home. Could this be a sign of an oncoming stroke?
