Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Conditions such as those experienced by your mother, which have occurred for a long time and are quite severe, require in-depth evaluation and direct examination. There are so many symptoms that you need to clarify first, for example:
Since when do these symptoms occur?
Does it occur suddenly or appear slowly and become increasingly heavy?
Are there certain triggers before the symptoms appear, for example a history of accidents, severe emotional shocks?
Are there certain diseases that have been suffered by your mother before, such as high blood pressure, diabetes, asthma, HIV, syphilis?
Does the cramp in his hands or legs occur in both hands and feet or only just one side?
Are there any weaknesses or palpable disorders of the hands and feet?
Which pain in your body do you feel? Did the cramps that you described earlier cause pain? Or pain occurs elsewhere?
Are there certain medicines currently consumed?
Is there a memory disturbance or disturbance of consciousness?
Lots of further questions must be asked from your story, to clarify the symptoms experienced by your mother. The following are some of the possibilities that can cause some of the symptoms experienced by your mother:
injury to the brain (for example due to an accident)
certain diseases of the brain and nervous system, such as brain infections, strokes, brain tumors, parkinsonism, ALS
thyroid hormone disorders
electrolyte and blood sugar disorders
psychiatric disorders, such as depression, schizophrenia, acute stress
side effects of certain drugs
In conditions such as those experienced by your mother, you should take your mother to a neurologist. The condition of your mother requires a more complete examination, including blood and radiological examinations (such as CT scans or MRI) to see whether there are certain disorders in the brain or other organs. Your mother needs a complete physical examination that can only be done when meeting with a doctor in person.
To find out how to cure it, you must know in advance the exact cause of your mother's illness. It is better to do a doctor's examination first, follow the examination recommendations proposed by the doctor so that the exact cause can be found first. Before there is a clear cause for the symptoms that your mother is experiencing, no therapy can be given other than symptomatic therapies (for example pain medication if your mother is in pain, sleeping pills if your mother cannot sleep, etc.).
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
