Ocular Migraines

I have been getting ocular migraines for years off and on. I am having them more than ever now and with some rather frightening experiences! A short time after the ocular migraine, I have trouble speaking words, I have them in my head but either can’t speak them or can’t bring them to mind. Also, I recently discovered that I can’t write, I had tried to write a thank you note (after an ocular migraine) and made several attempts, but could not get the words to come out right. The words were either missing letters, out of order.

Last year I went to the emergency room because I thought I was having a stroke, but the tests showed I was fine. Now the symptoms are worse and I am getting worried. Has anyone out there had this happen to them from ocular migraines?
