Brief Answer:
Get investigations done.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

I have read your query.

You have not given any history of previous trauma, increase in blood pressure and fasting blood sugar. Also you have not given any previous history of seizures. If you have any of these, it may be a cause.

So I would suggest you to get fasting blood sugar, morning blood pressure, Hb levels, MRI of the brain with contrast to evaluate for a structural lesion (such as MS, stroke, tumor, etc). An EEG test may be needed. Your local doctor/neurologist will know about these tests.

If the above test come back normal, I would suspect that your symptoms could also be due to stress/anxiety (although this diagnosis is only to be considered after the testing is done).

I hope it helps.

Thanks.

Dr.Singh.
