    Hi Lucy, Can I ask how old you are? This is a vital piece of the puzzle.

    Hi, Lucy. Sounds to me like you need to see a doctor, the sooner the better. Your symptoms are one of the symptoms associated with stroke or TIA (transient ischemic attack), kind of a mini-stroke. Did you have any of the other symptoms: inability to lift an arm, crooked smile? I am not a medical professional and I don’t mean to scare you, but please consult a doctor! Best wishes.
