Thank you for posting your query.

Based on your information, it is obvious that your mother has suffered brain damage in September 2011. However, it is not clear what was the nature of brain damage. If you can upload a pdf copy of MRI or CT scan of brain report, it would be helpful.

Her inability to walk and imbalance could be related to the brain damage that she suffered earlier.

Whether her current medications are correct or not would depend on complete clinical information, such as whether she had fits, or does she have features of parkinsonism.

Best wishes,
