What can be the reason of vomiting followed by severe stomach pain and unconsciousness at times ?

I took my dad to the ER last night his symptoms were yellow jacket bee stings severe stomach pain vomiting and shallow breathing and almost unconsciousness at times. When we got to the ER he was very confused and developed left sided weakness and numbness . Blood work showed 2 times over the limit blood alcohol levels. My dad only had a beer earlier in the day and two glasses of wine later that evening. My question is what could give all these symptoms He has no effects of having been drunk last night this morning and day and still has numbness and weakness. the ER also did Ct scan that showed nothing wrong. My dad is in his mid sixties good healthand around 150 s for wieght. Please help. Thanks

Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Due to the alcohol he could be a Transient ischemic attack due to arterial spasm in the brain. Alcohol can precipitate a TIA. He needs to get his blood pressure under control, also blood sugar in control, stop smoking and drinking alcohol, get an echocardiogram to rule out heart and also rule out carotid artery disease. He needs a fat free diet, eat plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables in diet. If his cholesterol and lipids are high in blood he may need drug treatment to reduce them, he needs to lose weight and stay fit if overweight. He will need to exercise as well.
