My mother is 62 and has had A.D for a long while now. i go and visit her in the nursing home as often as i can, anyway for the last month or so she has started to loose contol of her bowels. she has also been fainting(which is getting to be a regular thing now). The Dr has seen her but can think of no reason why she's fainting. Sometimes she'll have a bowel movement then faint or the other way around. I don't no if what's happening to her is all part and parcel of A.D or if something else could be wrong. Has anybody got any suggestions of how i can find out please. I'm quite worried about what's happening to her. Tara.
