LOS ANGELES (AP) — A spokesman for Dick Van Dyke says the actor is undergoing tests for “cranial throbbing” that’s causing him to lose sleep.
Spokesman Bob Palmer said Thursday the 87-year-old has been experiencing a throbbing sensation in his head when lying down. Palmer said scans and other tests have yet to yield a diagnosis.
He says Van Dyke has a strong constitution and is otherwise OK, but the “fatigue factor has become acute.”
Palmer says that until Van Dyke receives a diagnosis and treatment plan, he’s been advised not to fly and is resting at his Malibu home.
He was to accept an award next week from New York’s 92nd Street Y but canceled the trip.
