During the funeral of his mother and after the funeral of his mother. His blood pressure is reported to be 157/92 just after the service. Usual blood pressure is unknown. They are now headed to or are at the gravesite for the burial. The plan is to take his blood pressure is soon as they return home from the graveyard. Are there any other steps that should be taken?

Hi, I am an American Board Certified Neurologist with experience in diagnosing & treating all neurological and all other medical conditions including the concerns of sudden loss of memory you have mentioned here, and I am very glad to help you with your health concerns.

First I will ask few questions so that I can gather additional information related to your health concerns of your friend;

1) Is the memory loss still present, or getting better?

2) Are there any other symptoms, or is it just isolated loss of memory?

3) Is the patient on any medications?

Best regards,

Neuro Doctor

You are very welcome!

Okay I see. Nice to hear he seems fine now. And it is the correct decision to take him to the ER. Do you want me to discuss his case further?
