Thank you for posting your query.
I have noted th symptoms of your father.
They are suggestive of TIA- transient ischemic attack
. This occurs due to reduction of blood flow to a part of brain.
TIA should be treated, as it is a risk factor for future stroke.
He should be on aspirin or clopidogrel
and his risk factors (diabetes
, high BP or cholesterol
) should be controlled.
He should see his neurologist
I hope my answer helps. Please get back if you have any follow up queries or if you require any additional information.
Wishing you good health,
