In brief: ?nerve/muscle issue
The difficulty could involve weakness or incoordination, and may be due to peripheral nerve or muscle disease, but could also be due to problems in the brain or spinal cord.
It is imperative that she have a full evaluation with her primary physician, and if necessary, a referral to a neurologist.
