Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries
For how long did this episode last?
Does he have any other medical problems?
Is he currently on any medications for anything?
Less than a minute
Please let me know.
I did state that in my question?
Yes you did state that in your question, just saw it, sorry.
He is taking no medication or has any pre existing illnesses. He is overweight and has been quite stressed lately. His maternal uncle died suddenly from an undiagnosed heart condition and his father has had two heart bypasses. This is why I am concerned.
well, with the symptoms that he had he could most likely have had what is called as a transient ischemic attack or TIA
This should be checked immediately.
By a transient ischemic attack I mean that there may have been a transient lack of oxygen to some part of the brain due to some small blood vessel being blocked for a few seconds.
Do you recommend he goes to hospital?
Yes I do recommend that.
Even if he feels ok now?
Yes even if he feels okay now. If he can get to see his doctor soon then even thats okay.
If he cannot get to see his doctor in a day or two then I would recommend he should visit the hospital.
Ok, thank you.
