Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.

I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

As you explain the history it is hard to say what is the exact cause. However if the doctors haven't recommend any further examinations than nothing to worry about.

My brother, who is a 69-year-old caucasian, had a stroke about 7 years ago that caused the muscles on his right side to become almost useless. No paralysis, but a weakening of muscles. Some days he acts extremely sleepy and his speech is very slow and slurred, so much so that it concerns me. The next day he may act much better. It may not happen again for several weeks. He says it s because he needs more sleep. I may need more sleep sometime, too, but my speech is never slurred like that. What could be wrong? Is it really only needing more sleep, or something more?

For the past 4-5 months I have been suffering on and off with dizziness, blurred vision nausea and muscle weakness in my arms, 3 weeks ago I started to feel I have pressure in my left ear occasionally, now the pressure is always there and seems to have spread to the whole left side of my head and the dizziness and light headedness is now constant as well as the blurred vision in my left eye. What could be causing this?
