Hello,

If there are no prior symptoms and no additional symptom or disease as sugar or backache or prolapse uterus, then you should undergo CT scan head to rule out cerebral pathology. Also, undergo blood pressure checking. Also, undergo urine complete examination.


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