Customer Question
My husband has just...

My husband has just experienced some kind of fit maybe ? He is now feeling nausea and is quite clammy to touch . he was watching TV and all of a sudden made a moaning noise then flung his hands and legs in the air .

Doctor's Assistant: What seems to make the symptoms worse or better? Have you noticed any swelling?

No , he does not want to move because he feels "crook in the guts " No other pains but very clammy . He said he could smell a chemical smell

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No , he is not on any medication but today we were fasting. He had breakfast but then did not eat until dinnertime . He has had this smell and nausea about three or four times before but i did not know about this

This can be mini stroke. The medical terminology is transient ischemic attack or transient neurological attack. There is a tiny duration of lack of blood supply in a part of brain. He would need an assessment at emergency room. Following investigation are required;

1) Color doppler study of carotid arteries in neck.

2) CT scan of brain

3) EKG

4) Troponin blood test.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.
