"Dear Dr, I know someone who had a mild stroke 3yrs ago & since then has been weak but able to move every part of her body.Recently she had certain series of events happen which caused undue stress&anxiety & she suddenly developed loss of mobility in her legs.She is in her mid 60s &when taken to hospital the doctors treated high BP &recommended she continue her normal drugs to control BP& also said she should go home &return in 2days time for further renal tests. Should they not have asked for CT scan to be sure it's not a relapse of stroke"

    Hello good morning. Yes they should have asked for one but the information that the CT scan will give doesn't add any more improvement to treatment cos its purpose is defeated in this part of the world.
