You and dad go to MD: The hot flashes may not be true hot flashes but feeling hot and sweaty when he has difficulty breathing. The wheezing is the sign of breathing problem either because of his lungs or water in his lungs because of heart problem. Unsteady on his feet and forgetful is because of his aging brain and possible bleed from or blockage of brain blood vessels. Go with dad to his doctor ASAP.
