Hi sweet,
How are you feeling now?
I think in anxiety you have posted two queries of similar questionnaire.
As I told you, your symptoms appear to me as recurring TIA leading to evolving Stoke.
It does not appear to me as seizure.
It is important for you to visit neurologist at earliest and have thorough check.
A meeting with cardiologist at earliest is must to help in controlling your blood pressure.
Hope this helps you.
Bye.
