As you have described that with his asthma the infection had gone to his chest, I believe its as a bacterial endocarditis.
A lot of time with this there are small tumours that grow upon the heart valves and then may get dislodged to any part of the body. The same dislodged
Tumour parts can go and block any artery causing blurring dizziness black outs and even breathlessness
