Hello,I am Dr. Aren with over 39 years of clinical experience and I will help with your query. A CT scan of the brain to rule out lacunar haemorrhage would probably help rule it out or any other Cerebrovascular accident.A good ENT checkup and a Tilt Table Test would be another test which may be needed.I am fairly certain that the problem would be either neurological or ENT related.

Diabetics usually take their medicine even if they miss their meals,this causes hypoglycaemia and altered sensorium.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

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.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
