If Dr Love's friend lived in the UK he would be able to visit the doc and receive treatment without worrying about losing his house due to medical bills. Instead he is having to self-medicate something that could be life-threatening (if it was a stroke, the likelihood of suffering others increase without appropriate treatment).
He can here too...He can walk into an emergency room at any publically operated hospital (not privately operated) and they cannot refuse him treatment.

There's a number of possibilities including the stroke.
A full blown stroke - CerebroVascular Accident or CVA.
A "mini stroke" - Transient Ischemic Attack or TIA.
Bell's Palsy (kinda rare but certainly possible).
