Blackouts or Dizziness
Dear Dr. Vincent,
You had performed a surgery on me 8 years ago and thanks to you I'm hale and healthy. This post is for my dad (Mr. Dhivyanathan). He is 61, recently retired and does not have diabetes or blood pressure. When he visited me in the USA he had two incidents. Once, he blacked out and collapsed to the floor. He recovers by himself and is not aware of what exactly happens to him. I witnessed only one of these incidents and he was on his bed, lying down. He sat up and started screaming, with his eyes rolling for ~20 seconds and he has no idea of what he did, but remembers something happened. They went back to India 3 months ago and have been consulting doctors in Trichy (my hometown), but they haven't diagnosed what the problem is yet and I'm worried. He had 3 incidents after they got to India. Could you please enlighten me about his condition and could you please suggest which specialist they should be consulting with? (Neurologists, Cardiologists, Neurosurgeons). Thank you. Appreciate the time you take to reply to this.
