It can be a symptom of TIA or stroke, which usually affects one side. It can also be due to pinching of nerve in the neck or other conditions.You should get it examined by a neurologist & have tests.

Any query, please feel free to ask.
It will be my privilege to assist you.

I accept your answer. It is pretty much what I got for free on webmed or some other website. Do not charge me twice. The $19 has already been charged to my Visa.

Thank you.
