Yup. Dad's just got worse. Brushing teeth, wash face, could even have a tickle of a feather(not that he did that lol) and it could set it off.....but not all the time. Wind....whoooweee, drop him to his knees. They can do surgery, basically put a cushion on the vessels, but it doesn't always work. Might work and eventually come back. So far 2 pills a day are doing the trick and hopefully that's the only thing he has to do. It don't matter your age or gender, anybody can get it. Our vet has a mild case of it. He is in his 30's. Lady my Dad's age had surgery for it. She couldn't even leave the house before, now she can function on the farm. Still has triggers, but not near as bad.
