Customer Question

I am John asking for my wife aged 79 why she woke up this morning and was unable to get out of bed due to insufficient strength in the legs, She could not stand up or get to the loo but with my help we managed to get to the bathroom. She is up now but talking about going to the Doc tomorrow. Is this a case of extreme nervous reaction to doing to many jobs around the house?

I would not put this off to extreme nervous reaction.

Your best -- and really only -- course of action at this point is to call for an ambulance and get her to the A&E for a full exam.

This could be very serious.... a stroke, a blood clot etc.

Do not wait until now.

Does this make sense to you?

Sorry but we cannot go as far as you suggest. We cannot rate the symptoms so serious. We will consult our GP and see what he says. Will let you know outcome.
