Thank you for writing. After going through your symptoms, it is important to know if CT scan of the brain has been done. Sometimes, we need to exclude a small bleeding (hemorrhage) in the brain which can cause the above symptoms. A neurosurgeon opinion would also be advisable.

If CT scan is normal, then physiotherapy would be useful. Alongwith, analgesics can be used for relief of headache.
