in the middle of conversation and my speech became jumbled

User Profile
For the first time today, I was in the middle of a conversation and my speech became jumbled. I knew what I wanted to say, but my words didnt match the thoughts. I knew what I was saying wasnt right, but couldnt get the words out. I had a slight headache (not anything that I would call a migraine, or even a sever headache). I also had about half an hour of spotty vision in one eye. I went to the ER, had an EKG done, a CT scan, blood pressure was normal...they sent me home with instructions about migraines and headache symptoms. Im still really worried. What can I do, or what should I be looking for?
I look forward to your response,

Hello and welcome to E health forum.

The description of the symptoms indicate the rare possibility of any reversible obstruction in the carotid blood vessels.

You might consult a vascular surgeon and get examined. Then the need for tests like MR angiography or Doppler sonography of the carotid vessels can be assessed.

These tests might be helpful to know the exact cause of your symptoms.

I hope this helps.
