Hello,

First of all, you should do some investigations such as; a CT Brain to exclude a focal brain lesion, an ECG to exclude heart block, Lipid profile in the blood and measuring blood pressure.

If you had hypertension, you should receive medical treatment, take aspirin 160 mg twice per day after meals and do an ECHO on your heart, besides taking vitamin B complex once per day after meals and Benfotiamine 40 mg once per day after meals.

You should change your lifestyle by decreasing fat and salt in your diet, besides stop smoking and drinking.

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

Take care

Regards,
Dr Dr/Mustafa, Neurologist
