Blurry vision, numbness, mixed speech, migraine.. help?

Okay I figured it's time to get some opinions on this.. Back in March I was at volleyball practice when I lost vision, left hand and mouth went numb, and my speech was all messed up. I'd try to say one word but come up with something totally different, couldn't even put a name to my team-mates faces. Ended up in hospital that night, did some tests, no irregular results. Saw a cardiologist for more tests, nothing. But now it's happening again and it's getting worse. The epsiodes are followed by severe headaches. I'm scheduled for an MRI and osteopath, you name it I'm seeing different specialists. Is anyone else having these problems? I'm a 20 year old competitive volleyball player.. and not quite ready to end my career yet. Help!

Sounds like you had a stroke!!! If it happens again, call 911.  Also go to doctor and request MRI, they will be able to detect if you had one from a scan.  I had a stroke Aug 2.  I am relatively young, triathlete, no risks of stroke.  Then they found an ASA and PFO combination in heart which I will close soon with surgery.  They believe strokes in young folks are caused by this condition.  Good luck to you!!
