She was fully awake and aware at all times. She also complains of difficulty in walking after these episodes started.\n\nHer medical and family histories are unremarkable, and she is not on any medications. Her daughter died 4 years ago, at the age of 3; she required several sessions of counselling at that time.\n"},{"insert":"\n"},{"insert":{"image":"\/storage\/case-images\/pd\/PD-Y-001_en.png"}},{"insert":"\n"}]}
