My mother had a loos of mobility in both legs. The problem just started, and comes and goes. This just started a last week. She is 85, but active, and has not had any mobility problems.
they gave her a CT scan, and didn't find anything. She was given blood tests, all showed up negative.
She recently finished 5 weeks of IV Antibiotics for methacillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, located in the bone in her toe, which was then removed. She is type 2 Diabetic, takes medication for that, and Zoloft for depression.
Any ideas? should she see a neurologist? Could this have something to do with the MRSA, or treatment?
Thanks for any help you can give us.

Hi I think you should take her to a Physical Therapist. Physical Therapists are the professionals who diagnose and treat individuals of all ages.
