You are in the right direction. You need to consult Neurologist for detailed evaluation.

It can be a transient ischemic attack or low blood pressure problem.

Your serum random blood sugar estimation also should be done.

CT scan can be as you have two such a fall down attacks.

You can attach reports to comment further.

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