Hello,

Thanks for the query,

I understand your concern,

Let me assure you that your problem is not serious at all.

In the absence of vomiting, loss of consiousness, weakness of leg/hand etc, you should not worry at all. I will advise you to observe your self and if you continue to have problem, you may get a local neurologist to examine and evaluate you.
Please stay relaxed

I hope that this clarfies your query,
Let me know if you have any other issue in this regard
I will be very happy to help you

Best wishes

Hello,

Thanks for the feed back

I understand your concern

If you are so concerned, I suggest you to undergo a detailed neurological evaluation including scans. This will rule out any neurological cause for the same.

I still believe that you may wait and observe your self for some time.

Let me know if you need any further help in this issue

Best wishes
