Brief Answer:
Likely to be related to benign causes

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your query.

The symptoms that you are having are likely to be related to benign causes like electrolyte imbalance and B 12 deficiency, etc. Most of the times these symptoms can be taken care of by taking electrolyte rich fluids and Methylcobalamin supplements.

I do hope that you have found something helpful and I will be glad to answer any further query.

Take care
