Question: Temporary leg semi-paralysis
|Kazuko Hiro - Wed May 06, 2009 1:39 am||
My grandmother, age 67, weight approximately 70 kg, has suffered yesterday something which resembled a temporary leg semi-paralysis.Now she is stabilized but her muscles are contracted and she can not move very well.Please help us identify the problem, as she does not want to go to a doctor.I do not know in which category to put this problem, so if this isn't a rheumatology subject, please guide me to the right forum.

Sudden onset of limb weakness with change in tone are symptoms and signs of a stroke.
I would recommend having a prompt evaluation done by a physician.
