Thank you for posting your query.
Based on the information provided, the most likely diagnosis is brain stroke
. Neurological deficits in stroke do take time to recover, and it is not unusual to find weakness persisting for a few months.
Regarding a possibility of multiple sclerosis
(MS), it is unlikely, as there seems to be a single episode of neurological illness. In MS, there would be multiple episodes of neurological disturbances.
I hope it helps. Please get back if you require any additional information.
Wishing you good health,
