Stroke victims after a nap

My grandfather is 65 years old and recently had a light stroke. It starts with an "I". He has trouble with his right side. He will improve throughout the day, however if he takes a nap some of his symptoms return. Is this normal and can anyone give me any information on this?

Hello and hope you are doing well.

His symptoms of transient difficulty in using his limbs could be just a natural occurrence, when people tend to sleep on them for too long. But it could also be due to an entity called TIA or transient ischemic attack, which as the name indicates there is a temporary lack of blood flow to a particular part of the brain. This usually recovers, but these people are more prone for strokes. So, please have him evaluated, consult your physician.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
