Hi, Bimalji,
Thanks for query,
From your history I don ot get any idea about about any illness in the past causing this problem.
Long untreated blood pressure or uncontrolled diabetes might have caused some damage to your brain leading to paralysis or hemiplegia resulting permanent disability.
Physiotherapy and regular treatment from your neurologist is very essential to prevent further damage and disability.
ok and bye.

Physical Therapist or Physiotherapist Suhani Sethi's  Response
welcome to hcm
can u tell me what sort of physiotherapy is going on?
u r likely to continue with physiotherapy
is it that u have no movement at all?
if yes go in for muscle stimulation, galvanic current
if you have grade 1 to 2 muscle power go in for faradic current with trying out voluntary movements when the current comes and then relaxing.
if you are grade 3 and above no stimulation is needed
continue with your prescribed medicines
exercises are likely to result in improvement one day
