My grand mother has weakness in the limbs. She had hemiplegia. In hemiplegia the hands and legs on one side of the body become very weak. She was unable to lift the hand ad leg, unable to walk. She is on treatmetn but still it is the same. I think nothing can be done once the patient gets it

See a good neurologist. It requires immediate attention, later it will be difficult to treat. Your aunty also needs a CT scan, take her to the highere centers for treatment

Hello! A week ago I was seen in the ER for sever headaches . After a spinal tap I was informed I had come down w/ viral meningitis . Although I m starting to feel better, I do have some concerns. First how long should I stay out of work? I am a massage therapist and esthetician so my job is very hands on and I am in close contact with my clients. Next I am a very physically active individual and would like to start working out again next week but wasnt sure how long healing takes place after a spinal tap? Lastly my only other complaint post diagnosis is that my arms are slightly numb and tingly and feel weak....obviously not condusive to massage therapy treatments . Is this normal w/ something like meningitis or something I should be concerned about? Thank you for your time in addressing my concerns. Dia L
