This is typical of a premigrain attack. It used to happen to me all the time. I would think I was able to talk but only jibberish came out. Also, it would be an accompanied by an inablitiy to decifer writen language, tunnel vision and nausia.
I lost 2 jobs due to this. Once I was waiting tables, and started talking jibberish to my custumers, and I couldn't read the menu. It looked like a foreign language. The event usually lasted about 18 hours. My employer thought I was on drugs and fired me a few days later. Another time I was doing fund raising over the phone, when suddenly and withou warning, I began speaking jibberish. The person I was speaking to hung up on me and complained to my employer that I was drunk. Got fired, again.
At that time, back in the 1980's no doctor was able to tell me what was wrong and no medication eased my syptoms. I never got a formal diagnosis, but in reading and talking to others I came to conclusion that these were migrain headaches that were related to my female cycle. Quite by accident, I discoved that psylocybin stopped the attacks in their tracks. This is well documented, by the way.
