Brief Answer:
Need to exclude minor brain strokes.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thank you for posting your query.

I have noted your symptoms. Based on that, we need to exclude brain strokes (lack of blood flow to brain). For this, a brain scan such as MRI should be done.

In addition, blood tests such as vitamin B12 & D levels and lipid profile (cholesterol levels) should also be done.

There is no need to worry, as treatment can be done once a diagnosis has been confirmed.

I hope my answer helps. Please get back if you have any follow up queries or if you require any additional information.

Wishing you good health,
