Neurologist 's  Response

I am glad to note that your sister has shown recovery from a critical illness. based on the details, we need to exclude nutritional deficiencies such as vitamin B12, hemoglobin and vitamin D levels.

These can be checked in the blood. If possible, get a CT scan of the brain also done to exclude any bleeding/blood clots.

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

Take care
