Be seen by a Dr.: This might be a minor issue but at our age, it's often wise to check it out and find an early cardiovascular problem early. Carotid artery blockages can present w/ similar signs (certainly not always) so have a pro look at you and do an exam. Better safe than sorry is a good way to live. Hope it's an easy fix or that you caught a problem before it caught you. Best!
