May I ask if you take aspirin and a statin drug for cholesterol?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

yes, both

Expert:  Dr. Brims replied 1 year ago.

Have you had a CT scan or MRI of your brain since these started?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

No, I've made appointment with a ear, head and neck clinic. August 5th

Expert:  Dr. Brims replied 1 year ago.
Okay, I would recommend you have CT scan of your brain, and then possibly an MRI, this may be due to mini strokes which are officially called transient ischemic attacks. They are more likely to occur in diabetics, and to diagnose them you would need one of the above tests. If you are already on aspirin and you have these symptoms your physician may have to start you on aggrennox, which is a better anti-platelet agent than aspirin to prevent these attacks
