It may be due to a temporary loss of blood to certain areas of the brain and this is most likely due to venous congestion that inhibits blood flow. It can also be as a result of a minor stroke and certain medicine interactions may also result in this condition.

It is triggered by sudden stress, maybe physical or emotional such as being exposed to extreme temperature, undergoing a medical procedure or doing strenous physical activity. Also by seizures or by receiving bad news or too much stress.
