My girlfriend had problems with her speech today at work at roughly 7am accompanied by pressure in the back of her head. To be more specific, she sounded as if her tongue was swollen and felt pressure in the soft spot bellow her occipital bone in the back of her head. She didn't describe any pain just pressure. There were no other symptoms. We immediately went to the ER. Once we arrived the symptoms were gone. They checked her over, asked lots of questions, consulted a neurologist, and sent her home suggesting it was a idiopathic reaction and to take some aspirin. This evening she felt the same pressure and immediately knew her speech was going to be the same. She got one sentence out to tell me it was happening again before it went away.
Here's some info about her.
32yo, female 5'3" 130lbs mother is white father is Asian
She has no known allergies, occupation CNA, is not on any medications and is a smoker.

Any thought or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
