This is Dr. David
he needs an MRI scan of his total spine
and also EEG scans of the brain to check for seizure activity.
and he might even need a spinal tap to check the fluid around the spinal cord.
has he had these tests yet?
yes, you can accept additional phone consult services at that time to be able to talk on the phone.
after flu infection he could have had a viral infection cause this, viral infection can infect nerves like in bell's palsy and can cause temporary paralysis.
he should still have those tests including EEG, spine MRI scan, spinal tap
hopefully these viral infections won't happen again.
he should be up to date with his vaccinations.
