Thanks for your query.

Your mother has weakness and numbness of the right hand which is intermittent and improves completely. The cause can be in the nerves of the right hand, neck, spinal cord or in the brain.

When some one is hypertensive we should always consider minor stroke also. I want to know what kind of tests were done.

Usually in fibromyalgia such symptoms are not seen.

I would like to know the details of the test done as this would help me in suggesting you better and would like to suggest you after going through the reports.

I would also like to know if her Blood pressure levels are in normal range and the medications she is taking at present?

You can mail me the reports to YYYY@YYYY with subject:ATTN:Dr Shiva Kumar and please do confirm mailing of the reports by writing here as to suggest you at the earliest.

Awaiting your reply.
