How to find out what caused the stroke

scaredgrandmaof4 posted:
I suffered an ischemic stroke approximately 6 weeks ago. I was fortunate to get to the hospital quickly. My carotid arteries were clear, my echocardiogram was good. No one seems to know what could have caused the stroke, except I have had high blood pressure for many years. It was well controlled with medication, but apparently it stopped working.

I've changed lots of my habits since then , lost 10 pounds(still have several more to go), gave up caffeine and started walking. Is there anything else anyone can suggest to help insure another stroke is in my future
