Did this come on suddenly?

Does he have a tilt to his head at all?

If you look at his eyes, are they still or are they shimmying side to side?

It came on suddenly. It started yesterday. He doesn't tilt his head. His eyes look still.

So his head is perfectly straight/normal?

Has he been doing any vomiting?

Could he have gotten into anything unusual?
