I certainly do not intend to scare you unnecessarily but you may have had a very light stroke.  Are you having trouble speaking at all (pronouncing words)?  Look in a mirror and smile and see if one side of you smile is higher than the other.  Can you raise both of your hands equally level above your head?  Are you having trouble finding the words you want to say?  If you are having trouble speaking or finding the right words, if your smile is not equal or you can not raise your hands above your head equally it is a possible sign that indeed you did have a minor stroke.  In which case, you should get to your emergency room of the hospital ASAP.  A mini-stroke is often the fore-bearer of a larger more life altering stroke.  I sincerely hope I am wrong and I may be as I am no doctor.  But it  is better to be safe than to be sorry.
