Probably OK: Many people experience various reactions to the environment that can't be explained precisely. This calls for avoiding or minimizing exposure to them if possible. They often just go away as mysteriously as they arrived, but if this persists and becomes a concern of yours you owe yourself at least one thorough neurologic exam by your doctor.
