Brief Answer:
Take him to the ER immediately!

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thank you so much for this query.

I am so sorry to hear about what your husband experienced. This is called transient ischemic attack and announces the imminent risk of a stroke. Take your husband to the nearest hospital for evaluation and prevention. There is no need to waste any more time as the greatest risk factor for stroke is a ministroke or transient ischemic attack.

I hope this helps. I wish you well. Feel free to ask for more information and clarifications if need be. Above all, thanks for using our services.
