Brief Answer:
Neurological evaluation is necessary.

Detailed Answer:
Hello and thanks for using HCM.

I have read your question and understand your concerns.

Symptoms you've described are of neurological origin and may be related to conditions such transient ischemic attack, partial seizures etc. particularly since you had a stroke in the past.

So, it is necessary to get evaluated by your Neurologist first, who can understand better your condition after examining you.

Hope you found the answer helpful.

Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care.
