Briefly outlining my position. 24/7 carer for my mum who has had AZ for the last 7 years. During the last 18 months she has had approx 5 what I call 'funny turns' where she displayed one or more of the following symptoms - total confusion, unsteadiness, vomiting, anxiety, sobbing, holding her throat and others.... On 3 of those occasions I called 999 as i had no idea what was wrong. The paramedics on all occasions said her blood pressure was very high and because she was unable to communicate took her to emergency. After tests etc. they found nothing wrong and she was allowed home. On the 4th occasion I waited to see if she 'got over it' and just sat with her consoling her quietly. On the 5th occasion I took her round to the doctor (not an easy task in her condition at the time but doctor would not come out!!!) Last week it happened again but this time she was at her day centre. After each 'funny turn' her AZ took a turn for the worse. Just a small thing each time but a definite decline. However, after the turn at the club last week she has gone down hill a great deal i.e. not being able to feed herself,occasional incontinence, agitation (more than usuaal) unsteady on her feet, lack of appetite and sleeping a great deal. I am wondering if she is having small TIA's?????? Would anyone out there have any suggestions regarding this. Many thanks for any posts, love to all you carers out there.
