Transient Global Amnesia (TGA) FAA requirements

Does anyone know the FAA steps for medical certification following a TGA event?

The Guide for Aviation Medical Examiners indicates that it requires FAA decision and I have heard a 6 month period of observation must pass before the FAA will consider the issuance of a medical clearance.

I'm aware the late Dr John (Jack) Hastings did a lot of work in this area with the FAA but I have not been able to locate any papers around this issue.

Any help or pointing in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.

Do you have an FAA Airman Medical already?
