What treatments are used for severe cases of auto immune disease? My mom can't walk, has slurred speech, neck pain, etc. Help!

In brief: New symptoms??

A person who walked and talked yesterday, and awakens today with slurred speech and the inability to walk, is having a brain problem such as a stroke.
The person should ride the ambulance to the emergency room for treatment. She can bring all her medications, and her regular doctor(s) can be notified, after 911 is called. Don't worry if it turns out not to be a stroke; it's best to be safe.
