Hi Paramita,

The causes for this kind of a problem are many. A few of them are as follows:

1. Cervical spondylosis

2. A high blood pressure causing a TIA or a stroke

3. Nerve compression due to local causes or due to Diabetes

4. Ankylosing Spondylitis

All these need to be ruled out in her before starting the right treatment.

I would suggest you to get your mother examined by a Neurologist and get investigated for these problems and treated accordingly.

I hope this gives you an insight into your mother's problem.

I wish her quick recovery.
