Thank you for posting your query.
Sudden onset change in mental status could be suggestive of a blood clot. It can be confirmed by doing a CT or MRI
scan of the brain.
Treatment would consist of aspirin
(a blood thinner) and statins. In addition, control of BP, sugar and cholesterol
would be required.
Please get back if you require any additional information.
