Hello,

First of all, you should measure your blood pressure and if it were high you should receive medical treatment, decrease salt and fat intake and do an ECG and an ECHO on your heart.

Second, if you are a woman and you take oral contraceptive pills or hormonal replacement therapy, you should ask a gynacologist for help.

If you did not have hypertension or take the pills, you should do a CT Brain to exclude a focal brain lesion.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Dr/Mustafa, Neurologist
