I saw him today speaking live on Nasa TV and, even if I could not follow the entire interview, he appeared fine.
Maybe you're right, some problems in his body readapting to earth 1g after +150 days in space.
I think everything should be fine with him now Wink

He's suffered some vestibular system issues -- his inner ear isn't working properly, meaning balance is hard to keep and orientation is being thrown off.

This is no worry according to the Russian doctors that (are) look(ed/ing) over him, it may be an issue that he's just taking a little longer to readjust or his inner ear could be messed up for some other reason.

It's not only a slight "physical" health issue.  Suspect that his condition was either made worse, or even a result of his mother passing away while he was in Space.
