Hi,
Welcome to Healthcaremagic.com.

I had gone through your question I can understand your concern.
There can be many causes to the said signs and symptoms. Most important ones are hypoxia to the brain tissue or any mass in brain.
You need to go for scan of your brain as well as blood work mostly the RBCs count and hemoglobin level.
You need to visit a general physician for further evaluation and treatment. Hope your query is answered.

Regards
Dr Muzaffer
