    What happened to my grandpa?

    My grandfather is 67 years old, and this morning, as he was searching for a park space at the store, he began to feel a pain in his side. Within minutes he suddenly became confused. For example, he thought a tree was a parking spot.

    In the midst of his confusion he rams into a parked car. He had no idea what he had just done. He didn't even know who I was or where we were anymore and he was yawning like crazy, barely able to speak.

    I called 9-1-1, and when they arrived, they said his vitals were completely normal. And within 10 minutes he went back to his normal self, able to walk and talk as if nothing had happened. Yet, he didn't remember hitting the car. When we went to the hospital, I originally thought he had a heart attack, but a few tests showed that his heart was perfectly healthy.

    They're going to run more tests, because his blood pressure spiked right before they were about to release him. But as of now, there is no explanation. Could this have just been a stroke? What are the chances of it happening again?
