I have focal seizures ,back to back I can't communicate for 24 hours ( aphasia ) frustrating as before I retired I was a speech & language therapist I was having a bad day when I experienced tingling down 1 side Id never had tingling before I think they thought I'd had a TIA,but as it took them 4 hours to assess me my speech was staring to improve They did a bilateral carotid artery scan , satisfactory flow.I would see if you can get to the neuro again , especially with a history of young strokes.Take care x

The best thing if You have not already is write down what is happening when You have a seizure or have another person that write down what they see is happening for You.

Good Luck!
