Few questions I need to ask.......
Any History of elevated Alcohol use?
Any symptoms of muscle weakness in the arms or the legs?
Difficulty swallowing?
Have you had your Sodium levels measured? If so where they low?
Do you have Right Hand twitches at Rest or when you try to move to complete a task?

I have an idea but would like a bit more information. Good luck in your search for answers.

Hi,

Some of your symptoms seem be due to stroke which has resulted in pontine lesion. Symptoms like blacking out, loss of balance, and lost eye sight.
Chronic coughing and choking sensation could be due to chronic bronchitis, asthma or upper respiratory tract infection.
This requires further clinical evaluation by a neurologist. Please get it done at your earliest.

Thanks
