Dr. Shahzad MD :

Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Is she still having these symtoms?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

symptoms*

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Does she have any other medical problems?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Is she on any medications for anything currently?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Please let me know.

Customer:

no

Customer:

no she isnt on any medication

Dr. Shahzad MD :

I think that she should be seen by her GP ASAP at the very least.
If her symptoms are there, still she should be seen in the emergency (A & E)

Dr. Shahzad MD :

I would like to rule out a cause in the brain like a TIA (ministroke)

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Ideally I would like to refer her to a neurologist.

Customer:

she has had tests with the doctor previous that didnt show this issue shes been going for the past 6 to 8 weeeks

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Are you with me?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

oh ok

Dr. Shahzad MD :

She should then be referred to a neurologist.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

I do not think she has been investigated properly.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

She requires a MRI scan.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

MRI scan of her brain i.e.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Ultrasound scan of the arteries of her neck leading to the brain.

Customer:

ok

Dr. Shahzad MD :

I would be in the GP's ear to investigate her further and to refer her.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Anymore questions?

Customer:

is she iny any emediate danger is there any thing she should avoid doing

Dr. Shahzad MD :

No immediate danger but if her symptoms are severe enough she should avoid driving.

Customer:
