Whole body jerks

My mom is 81 years old. She has an uncontrollable jerking throughout her body. Started a few months ago and would dissappear. It has come back full force and has been going on now for4 days. It has taken her abilitu to walk away. When it first happened this time her eyes were glazed over and lifless for hours. She communicates okay now. The jerking slowed but is picking back up at times. 2 ct scans show no stroke. Of course they cant use contrast becoz of her kidneys. She cantlsy flat for mri. Doing eeg today. Had echo on heart. Corrotted arteries both at less than 50% so they say they dont bother till they are 62%. They keep trying to stand her up and she cant.her legs buckle. Not strong. I understand she needs physical therapy but what cozed this. She wad walking fine 5days ago.
