Brief Answer:
Symptoms are suggestive of TIA.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thank you for posting your query.

I have noted your symptoms and based on that, we need to exclude a diagnosis of TIA (transient ischemic attack). In this condition, the blood supply is reduced to a part of brain.

Investigations such as MRI brain and carotid doppler would help in confirming the diagnosis. Aspirin tablet is fine for the time being.
