My Dad hasn't been well these 2 days, he said he got a up

Resolved Question:

My Dad hasn't been well these 2 days, he said he got a up yesterday and feeling a bit dizzy and throughout the day, and still feeling a little dizzy today but not as bad as yesterday. And one of his eyes he said a little bit blurred, after using the allergy eye drop, he feels okay and the eye seems better. He still eats but of course not as much as before he feels sick. And he gets around okay, although sometimes it seems to me he is forgetable but then he is about the same when he gets older anyway. Going to try to get him to see a doctor tomorrow as this doesn't seem an emergency. He is 84 years young.

Thanks for this question

At his age, Ophelia, many things can do this.

The first place I would look is for a smoldering infection.

Like a urinary tract infection.

Does he have any symptoms that could help localize an infection?
