Brief Answer:
It would be useful to get a brain scan done.

Detailed Answer:
Thank you for posting your query.

I am Dr Sudhir Kumar, Neurologist, and I would try my best to help you.

I have noted your clinical details. Based on this, we need to exclude a brain pathology such as blood clot/infection/tumor, etc. This is more important if the symptoms are of short duration. However, if it is a long standing issue, then, we need to consider other diagnosis such as migraine and essential tremor, both of which can be treated with appropriate medications.

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,
