Ask Your Health Question and Get an Answer ASAP
Reading your question, just a moment.
I highly suggest getting the MRI. I'm a doctor in radiology and an MRI would best show you yes or now if you did have a stroke/brain injury of some sort.
If you can't sit for an MRI perhaps you can find one of the "OPEN MRI" machines that are usually in most regions of the country
Otherwise, having a repeat CT scan of your brain this far out from the initial incident would also provide clues to whether or not it was a stroke.
My primary concern would be a stroke or transient ischemic attack.
A seizure is highly unlikely as due to the length of your symptoms.
That is my strong recommendation.

Any more question?
Again, if you're satisfied with my answer, please click "accept". Thank you and best of luck, please follow up with either an MRI (best option) or a repeat CT scan (2nd best option but still would provide good info
I do accept your answer. It is closer to what i think than anyone else. I do need another MRI but i was jerking so hard they couldn't do it even with sedation. I was so calm after that but they had given up on me. The only clear symptom was the memory loss and it was total for the 5 days and i still do not remember what happened until i just suddenly woke up. I'm concerned about a stroke only because of my age. No after effects at all or could be the TIA. It's my memory loss that terrifies me. I am very satisfied with your answer above all others. thank you. Cynthia
