Go to your doc: Tests are very rarely abnormal and are usually unnecessary, Your primary doc should do a compete regualar and neurologic exam and refer you to a neurologist if he finds anything. MRI of the Brain with and without contrast are the most common, but without a definite need you'll be wasting money and time.
