Hi ciaralenne, welcome to H.C.M.Forum, it appears that the symptoms are due to high glucose level . or it may be C.V.A in this case immediate hospitalisation is necessory with in 2 hours of incidence . they give thrombolytic injections as a drip which slowly desolve the thrombus and there is chance of immediate recovery . if thrombus settles and paralysis is established , it will take minimum 2 months for recovery. thank you.
