Hello and Welcome

I appreciate your concern

You didnt mention the duration of these symptoms. She needs neurological assessment, primarily. In acute confusion states brain imaging and CSF analysis would be a must to rule out the possibility of encephalitis. Basic metabolic panel including renal and liver function tests should also be done. Viral hepatitis profile and EEG should also be obtained. If this workup is clear then a psychiatric consultation can be sought to determine the cause (mixed anxiety depression, delusions, schizophrenia, psychosis). An organic cause is always looked for, first.

Wishing you best of health
