Brief Answer:
Needs evaluation.

Detailed Answer:

Hi,

You need a thorough neurological evaluation. The weakness could have originated due to a mild stroke. Based on the findings of the clinical examination you might need certain investigations like CT Scan for confirmation.

I would insist you not to ignore it.

Hope I have answered your query.
