Hi! Ajisamson,
Your problem may be something as simple as B-Complex deficiency.

Or it may be some sort of Space Occupying Lesion in the Cranial Cavity.

You may take some B-Complex pill twice a day.

If you do not improve after five days get a CT / MRI scan done.

A neurophysician and ENT surgeon may be consulted.
