Was feeling tired in the day and not feeling hungry. In the evening went for a walk and felt pan in the legs down the knee. Had no appetite in night. Had some fever also. Slept unrest fully during the night.

In the morning was feeling uncomfortable and sat in a posture for a however. When asked to lie down..then expressed inability to lie down. Was erratic, was able to recognize wife, brother but did not remember any of the things latter.

Admitted to hospital and tested for meningitis. Drugs were administered for cerebral malaria & encephalitis as well. Had a fasting sugar level of 140.

Patient history:

60 male, 3yrs before had a bypass. BP: 140/70, diabetic for the past 15 years.

Responded to treatment and normal after a day..but weakness persists.

Please help to ascertain the cause of this.
