  • I do not know what it is. But I will offer some suggestions. It seems like it could be a stroke, or a mini stroke called a transient ischemic attack. Did your father's symptoms improve later, or stay the same? Tell the doctor and ask more questions. Maybe he should order an MRI of your father's head, to see what happened? Also, maybe it is arthritis of the neck, that has gotten worse? Keep asking questions of the doctor.

  • Take him to the ER. He needs a carotid ultrasound ASAP.
