I don't like it.: I wasn't that worried until you started describing the forgetfulness and trouble producing words in speech. This, along with the spinning feeling and headache, could be describing a brain event, such as a hypertensive-type stroke or hemorrhage. You need to be seen in an Emergency Department immediately. Your symptoms have me very concerned. Please go to ED right now!!
