Stroke?

I'm a 60 year old female. When I was around 25, in the 1970's, I had what I now feel was a stroke, although my doctor diagnosed it as anxiety and prescribed librium. He was deemed one of the top internists in the area. The symptoms included waking up with rapid heartbeat follewed by slurred speech, inability to make sense of or play music, reading a paragraph over and over again without retaining its meaning, insomnia, and the right side of my face was numb. It was nearly 3 months before the symptoms resolved themselves. Interestingly, having a drink temporarily eliminated the slurring. What part of my brain was affected? What effects can I expect as I age?  I'm having some problems with memory; might that be related, and what can I do about it?
