Thank you for posting your query.

Your symptoms are minor, and hence, there is no need to worry.

However, these symptoms could be related to transient brain ischemia (lack of blood flow to brain for a short while), also referred to as TIAs.

Please get screened for the risk factors such as diabetes, high BP, high cholesterol, etc. In addition, a consultation with a neurologist may be helpful.

Please get back if you require any additional information.

Best wishes,
