Thank you for posting your query.

I have noted your symptoms.

We need to exclude a brief ischemia (lack of blood supply) to brain, resulting in TIA- transient ischemic attack.

Please get screened for diabetes, high blood pressure and cholesterol.

Also, consult a neurologist to decide whether or not to start aspirin.

I hope my reply has helped you.

I would be pleased to answer, if you have any follow up queries or if you require any further information.
Best wishes,
