Transient ischemic attack

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

What you described was called TIA or transient ischemic attack in medical terminology. It so occurs in older people with or without risk factors that blood supply to brain is transiently or abruptly stopped due to reasons not completely known sometimes.
However physician warrant this as a sign of impending stroke and advise a review of risks and put on necessary medications.
So I suggest you to please get to your local physician provider for review.
