I am sorry to hear about your colleague ...

As his symptoms are typical suggestive of involvement of Central nervous system with twitching , weakness and feeling of hotness in head .

Before that his symptoms may worse , he need consultation from Neurologist , and he should immediately get MRI brain to see what actually is going wrong , so that things may be handled accordingly .

Regards ***** ***** him good health .

Good luck .
