Feel dizzy for 4 days and legs are numb

good day , my mom has been suffering from high blood pressure all her adult life , the last few years , she cant seem to get the right pills for her blood pressure . doctors keep on changing the pills but nothing has worked so far . as from Friday , she is feeling dizzy , and needs to walk against a wall to keep up right , Sunday she could even stand up by herself . she went to steve BIko hospital , they gave her new pills and send her home . its 2 days later and she feels as dizzy and off balance as ever . what could be wrong ?

Invest in a BP machine and measure at home - upper value should be 110-140, not higher or lower. Maybe it has nothing to do with her BP tablets and she is e.g. having an anaemia, bleeding in the gut etc.....she needs a thorough check-up with a thorough dr.
