Cannot move arm and foot

a couple of weeks ago my aunt got this feeling in her left toes and the fingers that they are not doing what she wants (she wants to bend the arm but it is not happening) and now this is getting worse. A couple of days ago it was the whole arm and just before she called me that she fell because she couldn't move her foot any more. She doesn't seem paralytic, she feels stuff she touches but the limbs are not going whre they are supposed to.
She is dragging herself right now, I am sitting here in the other part of the world scared of what she may have. She visited a neurologist a week ago and got a brain MRI but the results are sealed and she has an appt sheduled for tomorrow. I told her to call 911 and let them bring her to the hospital, but she is stubborn and wants to wait for the appointment.

What may she have, how bad can this be? Could have been a stroke or does it look like a brain tumor?

Thanks a lot for your help!
Sophie
