Hello and welcome to e health forum.

It is difficult to interprete the symptoms described here, but the most common cause would be due to thrombosis of the blood vessels in the brain.

The first step in the diagnosis would be a CT scan of the brain.

You might consult with a neurologist for further advice and treatment.
