In brief: Varied

In about 25% of patients, vertigo, slurred speech, and diplopia imply altered brainstem function.
Commonly in adolescent women but also in others, total blindness and sensorial clouding accompanied by vertigo, slurred speech, tinnitus and distal/perioral paresthesias followed by a confusional state. The symptoms usually persist for 30 m followed by a throbbing occipital headache.
