Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for consulting HealthcareMagic!

If you believe that he might be having a stroke and seems very confused with garbled speech, I suggest to rush to the ER as soon as possible. Because, stroke if treated very early, can be reversible. It can go irreversible if treatment is delayed. There are chances that he might not have stroke but still we cannot take risk.

I feel that the symptoms described by you needs an emergency evaluation and treatment. Please visit a ER at the earliest.

Hope I have answered your query. If you are satisfied, you may now close the discussion and rate the answer.


Wish you good health!
