Hi

Welcome to just answer

I am Dr. Gupta and practicing board-certified doctor for the last 18 years. I would need some more information regarding your question so that I can give you the best answer -

- may I know your husband's age?

- is he on any medicines?

- since when is he having these symptoms?

Regards

Thanks for the information

The symptoms that you are describing especially the slurred speech, nose bleeding and blank spots in conversation all together are serious. They can be due to

- cerebrovascular cause - an abnormality in the brain. This can be bleeding or tumor or vascular malformations (dilated vessels of brain)

- a trauma to head, which you husband might not remember

- pain in the neck along with the other symptoms again can be due to inflammation in the brain going down to the spinal cord

on a rare chance, these symptoms might not be related to each other. But in my experience, the possibility is less. I would recommend you to take him to emergency care to rule out the above possibilities.

Hope this information is helpful, please do get back for further clarification.

regards

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
