Our expert says:
It is very important to examine other possible causes for your father's symptoms. I therefore, suggest that he consults a neurologist for a full examination and a CT of his head, as well as an ultrasound of the arteries in the neck.
It is very possible that your father is experiencing small strokes that we call TIA's. We should not put off his symptoms due to alcohol abuse but rather make sure that there is no underlying pathology that can be treated.
