The pain is very severe and is getting worse. I want to take him to emergency room but if his doctor can’t help him then should I still take him? We have spoken with a sleep disorder clinic but waiting on paperwork and his pain gets worse every day so I don’t know what will happen in the next few weeks while he suffers.

Thanksgiving. He woke from a nap and was disoriented with weakness on his right side. I took him to hospital where he received the TPA drug. He had an EEG a few weeks ago with his new neurologist who said it was clear and he feels he had a seizure and all his pain and high blood pressure and high sugar is due to sleep apnea but pain is so severe and gets worse daily.
