MRI / MRA: If you're really concerned for a stroke or TIA - you might want to discuss s MRI with and without contrast as well as an MRA. Hope that helps!

Unlikely damage: Hard to say what occurred based upon your description, but unlikely permanent brain issues if your studies were negative. Cannot advise re EMG, as do not have full details. One alternative thought might involve an atypical migraine event, and this could be explored. You seem unsure about your doctors, might a second opinion or a Concierge visit here help?
