Thank you for your question on

Any symptom of weakness, numbness and feeling heaviness lasting a few seconds to a few minutes may be due to neurological dysfunction. Transient ischemic attacks in the brain are characterized by interference with blood supply to various parts of the brain sub serving functions of different body parts. TIAs can cause numbness, heaviness and tremors. General examination must be carried out to rule out systemic conditions like Diabetes, Hypertension, Blood flow disorders, Blood cell disorders and Dyslipidemia. If these are normal, then a CT/MRI scan may also become necessary to rule out any pathology in the brain.

If one is already suffering from these problems, then it is more probably related to these conditions, however, it is always safer to rule out any intracranial pathology like space occupying lesions.

Please consult your General Practitioner for investigations and examination. Thank you.
