Hello again.
I am sorry for his symptoms.
There can be a few causes.
There can be dehydration, fall of blood pressure, glucose.
Sometimes, neurological issues like a seizure can cause it.
Please try to give him adequate fluid to keep good hydration.
Tylenol can be given for headache.
I would also suggest to get him an examination by doctor.
I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
Wish him early recovery.
I would expect 5 star rating if you are satisfied with it.
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.
