If you think that's what he's having, keep a diary of when and how long they last and take some video of him if you can. Make an appointment with son's GP. It can be helpful to describe as accurately as you can what it looks like when these 'episodes' happen. Try to use clear, specific language to decsribe and if it looks like anything use that to help describe it too.
