Thank you for posting your query.

The symptoms are suggestive of minor brain stroke. The underlying cause needs to be evaluated.
In a young person, focus should be on a heart disease, vasculitis, thrombogenic state, etc. These can be found out with blood tests. Angiogram may be required in some cases.
Please get back if you require any additional information.
