My husband is 71 and has MS. He has been asleep 14 hours and can't get him up...opens eyes...falls back. It has happened before. What could be happening?
Your husband will require an evaluation by a neurologist to figure out why this is occurring intermittently. There are too many possible reasons and I do not have information in his condition(s) and treatment(s) to help.
