Need to examine: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. Try to drink more fruit juice, in case the symptoms are due to electrolyte balance. It would be prudent to see a doctor, preferably a neurologist. Wish you good health!
