Complex Migraine

I am a 33 year old female and very healthy! I have two little girls, work full time and married. About a month ago I am driving down the road and I had to pull over (how I did it, I will never know)because My lips and tongue went numb and I started slouching in my seat. I felt like I was going to black out! I got my car stopped and I had no clue where I was, I could not talk, my brain was jumbled and my hands felt numb.


I figured I was having a stroke. Once I recovered 5 minutes later I pulled back on to the highway headed home. 15 minutes passed by and it happened again, all of the same symptoms. I had to have my Mom pick me up on the side of the road and take me to the hospital. This lasted for an hour then I was fine. I was very tired for a few days but could function. I have dealt with a daily headache that will not go away for 3 months now. The Hospital said I was having an anxiety attack.. My Dr. said I was having Mini Strokes and the Neuro said it is Complex Migraines. I had a MRI and cat scan with normal results.

So, my question is do any of you have these same symptoms?
