Hallo Jolene
If you can't see a private GP I think you should go to the nearest provincial hospital to see a doctor. You may need referral to a neurologist and you may need a brain scan as your symptoms are worrying. There could be increased pressure in the brain causing these symptoms.

Hi Jolene, how long have you been riding your scooter and the helmet you wear does it sit very tight or put alot of pressure on your forehead. If you say yes to this it can be your helmet, otherwise go see a doctor and check your blood pressure
