    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."
