Hi there, thanks for asking. It could be related to a tumor in the brain, or a stroke especially since he has elevated blood pressure. You have had a good observation and it should be completed by visiting a doctor. He should have a full neurologic examination by his doctor to see what could be the cause. After the examination they will probably ask for some tests or MRI or CT scan to see what could be found. You should also ask him about any complaint like headache or dizziness. I wish him a good health. Let me know if you have any question.
