Customer Question

My friend was diagnosed a year ago with a cm1 after she collapsed for the second time and was rushed to A+E.Her symptoms are getting worse and she waiting for appointment with a neurologist as she's been referred for a second opinion by her GP.I'm extremely worried about her and so are her family as She has deteriorated so much these last few weeks.She been back to her GP on numerous occasions and he's begged for neurologist to see her ASAP as she can no longer use her left arm at all after tripping over and puting her arm out to save herself which left her not being able to move her arm at all.She been having great difficulty swallowing and now has to force feed herself a little something each day as she is now seriously underweight and borderline anorexic she was a healthy size 16 few months ago now she a size 8 and wearing Kids clothing ! Please please can you advise where she can go for some help as I am really afraid she going to die she in constant pain and she just about given up
