Blurred vision/ headache/ incoherent speech

Symptoms resolved over 2 hours (headache a bit longer). Recent stress test/ ultrasound of heart, liver and kidneys was normal. Doesn't drink or smoke (never has). Not overweight (68kg, 172cm tall). Fit.
What could be causing this?

Hi.
The symptoms that was experienced could still be due to uncontrolled hypertension.  There is a medical term called "hypertensive emergency" where patients experience change in sensorium, blurring of vision, or heart failure.  These symptoms usually resolve once the blood pressure is controlled.
However, there are other considerations for these symptoms.  An example would be a transient ischemic attack.
It would be best to consult the physician regarding these symptoms and for proper evaluation and management.
Good luck.
