This is mostly epileptic seizures and it needs antiepileptic medications under neurologist supervision..
An eeg can diagnose this.

Hi
I need more information to give an ideal opinion like is there headache ?
My opinion is that he is suffering from Vasovagal syncope , fludrocortisone acetate can be used, also electrical pacemaker .
Usually it requires no treatment and improve on its own
I recommend that they see a good cardiologist
Good Luck

Is it provoked or not
Is there is a stimulus, like getting angry , stressed , crying , or he losses his conciousness independently??

He needs to do detailed neurological examination
Then
He needs to do EEG and MRI as well

hi,
this is more likely to be epileptiform convulsions.
Consult a neurologist and get a EEG done.
thanks
