My husband is having what I call 'Spells.' He gets a strange feeling in his head, he knows its going to happen because he will tell me, cannot talk for about 30 seconds, then get's hot for about a minute or 2. He can go weeks/months without this happening, then he has days were he will have 5 or 6 occurrences in a day. Really takes the energy out of him, he will say "I just don't feel right". 62 years old, had 2 aneurisms 'repaired' 2 years ago, no follow on issues. Takes Keppra for siezures he has had in the past, 1 in 2013, 1 in 2015. Over all good general health.

why is LAD called the widowmaker? My husband had a stent put in the lad of his heart after a mild heart attack. It was said that was a widowmaker place. I was wondering about it. The blockage was in the base of the fork going into the heart which was opened when the stent was in place. But it had both forks blocked, from what I understand.

My husband, 85, just fell changing this clothes from church. He does not remember what happened. He regained consciousness right away and only cut his head. He has been overly tired lately. He does not want to go to the ER, so I hope it is ok to call a doctor tomorrow. He is taking a nap now. I think it was a blackout. He fell once before going to the bathroom, and we thought he got up too soon. He has had one stroke but he said he could not speak right then, and his speech is fine. We have been married 6 years, so I only know so much. My main question is can we wait until tomorrow to see a doctor is he seems ok and what doctor?

My husband took a drink of water, fell to the floor and then passed out for several seconds. When he came around he seemed fine, coughed for a while and had watery sounding burps for a while. Says he is OK now, no need to see a doctor. What do you think? He is 63, 5 10 190 lbs. in general good health.
