What type of "test" would cause such a thing to happen? Since you're blaming this test on what's happening I would reach out to the people who administered it first.

Second, if this condition isn't reversible, this is the type of person who will require round the clock assistance and if that is not something you believe you could do, either get an agency in who can, or send her away to a facility to assist with mental health. Not sure what is available in your area. Has she always been like this? She will require constant unconditional care.

Hello and welcome to EHF !


I went through your query and i understand your concern.She needs complete neurological assessment to assess and grade her disability and correlate it with the etiology and then proceed accordingly. Physiotherapy and supportive care would help.



Take care
