Hello and welcome to ask a doctor service. I read your query and here is my answer.
It look s he is suffering from some sort of infection most likely CNS infection. Gall stones has nothing to do with these. He may need certain tests like blood test, csf test and ct scan may be. You need to take him to the hospital as it may be dangerous for his health.
Hope i answered your question. Feel free to ask more if you need further assistance. Thanks.

Hi. I have been diagnosed with syncope just a couple of weeks ago. I am wondering why this suddenly came at age 43. I am extremely healthy but suddently started having presyncope symptoms and failed my tilt table test . My doctor put me on Florinef. I have noticed that my bowel movements have been green lately as well and now I am wondering if I could have some sort of virus that is causing both issues. I have no appeitite and after taking two bites of food, I feel full. Please advise.

Hi, I am a 20 year old mother of 2 children. ( 2 yr old and a 3 month old). I work full time as a Medical Assistant and a manager at Burger King. During my recent pregnancy I was experiencing episodes of dizziness and passing out. So I had to stop driving. It was discovered that may have a congenital cardiac abnormality. Recently a Cardiac Specialist performed a TEE procedure. Here are the results ( as written in my medical chart) It was discovered I have a large 5mm-7mm Patent Foremen Ovale or small ASD equivalent PFO with bidirectional shunt (positive contrast study for R-L shunt and left to right shunt on color Doppler). Normal LV wall thickness and cavity size with normal LV systolic function. No regional wall motion abnormality. RV size and systolic function appear normal. Consider Device closure of PFO since patient has recurrent TIA-like symptoms or syncpal episodes. My cardiologist advises against the surgery even though he sent me to see a top cardiac surgeon for further work up and to confirm the diagnosis. The surgeon feels the surgery should be performed while I am still young to prevent complications in the future and because I have been symptomatic with episodes of TIA and Syncope. I am not sure whose advice to follow. Please share with me the risks and benefits of this surgery. I need your help and professional advice.
