Thanks for the query

It looks like you have suffered from a transient ischemic attack. Since your right hand was involved it indicates that your left brain which had a transient loss of blood supply which also explains your slurring of speech. Please do not neglect the matter, you need to seek help from a neurologist as soon as possible for a MRI brain with angio. You will also need to be further evaluated for the TIA

I hope I have answered your query
