Our expert says:
Thank you for question. It is difficult to know exactly what caused your husband’s three episodes, but unfortunately I suspect they were related to alcohol. The possibilities would include hypoglycaemia (low blood sugar), or a form of atypical epilepsy, or simply anxiety and hyperventilation. His blood pressure is almost certainly also related to alcohol and unfortunately his lifestyle and his substance abuse are becoming major threats to his health. He needs to deal with his addictions one at a time, and will need help to enable him to beat them. With the help of your GP I would strongly advise referral to a psychiatrist, preferably somebody who deals regularly with the problem of substance abuse.
I hope things go better for him in the future.
Best wishes, JT
