Thanks for the query

I understand your concern

These symptoms are suggestive of minor brain stroke

You need MRI brain and tests to rule out diabetes, kidney problem and to check your blood pressure. These are the risk factor of stroke. Once the MRI is done, we can decide about the medicines. Please consult a local neurologist.

please get back if you need any additional information
