Cardiologist 's  Response
Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

You ought to consult your neurologist again – Atypical seizures or cerebrovascular insufficiency need to be excluded. / EEG and MRI may be needed. MRA (MRI angiography) shows blood vessels and is generally done at the same sitting.

Take care     
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
