Dear Friend,

In old patients this could be a sign of TIA or pre stroke but if you don’t have any risk factors such as raised BP (Blood Pressure) or diabetes or raised cholesterol, this could also be due to decreased calcium levels kindly get serum calcium levels checked.

Do let me know if you have more concerns.

Regards Dr XXXXXXX
