Has she ever had this before? No

Any recent injury or illness? No, however significant bruising occurred to her knees when had knelt on tile floor to clean them (beyond normal)

Is she taking any medications? No, just vitamins, 4 caps of Omega oil etc.

Any other symptoms? Any weakness? numbness in right upper arm

There are a number of possible causes for these symptoms, unfortunately, there is no way to identify the cause of these symptoms without a complete history, physical examination and some testing.

I believe the most prudent thing to do at this time would be to have her evaluated in the emergency room.
