How are you?
Yes a mini stroke is a possibility in your case. The symptoms of weakness and numbness of one side of the body with slurred speech and white matter changes in the MRI are seen in stroke.
Please continue with your dietary restrictions and it is good that you have quit smoking.
Keep your BP and blood cholesterol under control and exercise daily.
Hope this helps! Let me know if you need more information
