Brief Answer:
Need to visit ER...

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

The points that the person passed out for more than 30 minutes, had incontinence and is not absolutely normal now suggest he may have had a seizure. A second possibility of minor stroke cannot be ruled out.

In view of these factors, I will strongly recommend the patient to visit ER immediately. He needs to be monitored for repeat episodes. A brain scan and other neurological intervention is absolutely needed.

Hope this helps. I can help you here if you need anymore clarifications.

Regards
