Thanks for the information.
- Since when is she having this weakness in legs?

Regards
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
no joint problems no skin rashes nothing has been done about the luupus the falling has been aout the last two months
Expert:  Dr PG (M.D.) replied 3 years ago.
To be honest the problems appears to be likely neurological in this situation, though a lupus like rheumatological problem cannot be ruled out too.
I would recommend more extensive testing for lupus, tests like ESR, ANA, DsDNA, CRP etc. would be needed.
A neurological consultation and MRI of the brain / spine would be appropriate in this situation too,
Warm regards
