Your mother has suffered a major stroke (Paralysis) and presently you are seeing after effects of that in many ways. 1. Physiotherapy, Occupational therapy, Psychology professionals other than doctors to treat her diabetes would be essential. 2. If you find limited facilities near your present home we would suggest Institute for Neurological Sciences in Guwahati or any large institute in Kolkata.

see ur mother is a diabetic & perhaps hypertensve .....neurological damages are always poor to respond ....all u need is to concentrate on two things esp ....control her diabetes and her blood pressure so that future other attacks dont occur ...consult a good physician regularly & dont change ur doctor frequently

Is there any permanent cure for paralysis? My father had an accident more than two years ago. He fell off his motorbike, which resulted in a head injury. The head injury later caused paralysis that affected the left side of his body. He has not recovered from the paralysis since then, despite the fact that we got the services of many physiotherapists and consulted neurosurgeons. My father is nearly 67 and feels too much disappointed.

I have a problem that is not resolving. I have right eye ptososis, strabismus, the eye no longer moves to the left and lately constant weeping/tearing from the eye. In the cavernous sinus, I have greater ectasia on the right vs left carotid on MRI and a vascular blush on a cerebral angiogram, suggestive of inflammation, tumor or fistula. Currently, there is no identified aneurysm, no inflammation or infection in CSF or blood, no identified fistula, and no tumor on MRI. High dose steroids are not resolving the problem. What other things could be assessed/examined?
