My mum is now mute and can’t use any limbs

So I’m now turning 22 qualifying as a paramedic and my mum is in a care home, her MS was very stable, progressive but stable, she went into hospital last week with a 30 hour episode of unconsciousness, she’s now woken up but she’s now basically mute and has lost the ability to make any words, my mums only 53 and I feel like it’s all gone downhill so quickly with no specialised care

Hi Jennifer, congratulations on becoming a paramedic…good for you!

I am very sorry to hear of your mum’s ongoing health issues and MS. I believe it is quite rare for MS to do this. I wonder if there is something else going on…stroke?

I’m sure her doctors will be exploring all avenues.

Best wishes Boudsx

Hiya!!

So they’ve said what caused it is due to the high amount of medication she’s on over such a long period it caused her brain to shut down but this has also caused her MS to progress
