I'm just helping my mom's friend to post the problem that she's facing. So forgive me if my details are insufficient because I do not exactly know what is wrong, I'm merely describing that she told my mom.
She's 44 and since last year in November, she had problems walking. Her walking slowed down and she couldn't really move or lift her legs. Climbing steps became a problem as she couldn't lift her legs properly, causing her to trip several times.
Now, she couldn't stand up by herself without support.
She has consulted Orthopedics and Neurologists regarding her problem but to no avail. Despite the MRI and EEC tests, the doctors couldn't exactly point out what exactly is wrong about her. The doctor scheduled her for another checkup in 2 more weeks to further discuss her problem.
In such a situation, what advises should be given to her? Should she consult another specialist? It seems very hopeless right now as there is nothing that could be done while her situation worsens.
