Unclear but: You have given very little history. This could be related to some central nervous system issue. This could be infectious such as having been bitten by some insect or other type of infection. I would see your doctor tomorrow or if possible would go to an urgicenter tonight. This problem is concerning and would not blow it off. Best wishes
