Do symptoms such as slurred speech, weakness, loss of balance and fatigue indicate a neurological problem?

My mother has slurred speech, in early mornings, back to normal and progresses in evenings. She s been experiencing weakness in her legs, she loses balance and has fallen. Her doctor says it s due to old age, fatigue and stress. I don t see any visible signs of stroke. She has pinched nerve in her neck and has severe form of macular degeneration. I suspect neurological issue. Please help.

These symptoms are the early signs of a stroke. Now if go for neck vessel doplar study it will be clear. Whether any block is there or not.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
