Thank you for posting your query.
There were a lot of grammatical and spelling errors, so, I should admit I had some difficulty in understanding your problems.
From what I have understood, there are two possibilities:

1. TIA- transient ischemic attack- here, the blood supply to a part of brain is reduced, resulting in short duration neurological symptoms. This is uncommon at your age. CT scan may be normal in TIAs.

2. Seizures- These occur due to abnormal electrical discharges in the brain. Doing an EEG would help.

I hope it helps.

Please get back if you require any additional information.
