Feeling dizzy, getting headache and unable to speak properly. Required treatment?

Hi, my bf is 25 years old; this afternoon while working he started to get a really bad headache , and dizziness when he tried to talk he got really confused and he couldn t remember any of the words he was about to say. Right now he has to talkm really slow so that he doesn t get all confused again, he understands everything he is told but he can t form sentences easily. Thank you. Amy Matthews

Neurologist 's  Response
I am a neurologist and i thank you for posting this question in HCM
Let me tell you that any particular medical problem in medicine can be due to multiple causes and treatment and outcome depends upon the cause. Further in neuromedicine, other things which can help a physician get the right diagnosis are the sequential evolution of the symptoms and the detailed neurological assessment by a neurologist. All these things will hep to get the correct diagnosis.
Back to your question, you have listed some symptoms, based upon these i think that you need an urgent neurological examination to see if you have neurological deficits. The second step will be to get a scan done and treat it accordingly rather than simple assumption.
Hope this will help you
