My uncle aged 84 has had several episodes where his head falls forward to his chest and he cannot lift it back up for several minutes. He seems shaken and pale afterwards. He doesn't lose consciousness. He recovers after sitting down and resting for a short time. It has happened a handful of times since the summer that I know of. He is reluctant to discuss it and will not see a doctor. Any suggestions please would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome to e health forum.

It is difficult to make a diagnosis without a complete medical history and physical examination.

Your history and description do not indicate any specific medical disorder.

Hence consult your doctor who can examine you and provide a proper medical opinion.
