Possible Stroke?

Patient

Q: Hi For about 25 days i've felt really spaced out and my short term memory and thinking is alot less. I noticed this happened right after smoking a cigerette i felt very lightheaded,out of breath,and my heart was pounding. Ever since that happened my memory and thinking has been getting worse.I've only smoked for 6 months but i've been overwheight for 15 years. I'm afraid i had a stroke from high blood pressure and i susstained brain damage. I got a mri 5 days ago don't have the results yet but will see my doc in 20 days.
What do you think is going on with me?
