Hi I am new to this forum. My mum is well into the middle stage of AZ she is 79yrs old and cared for by my dad whom is fantastic; he has family around him for some support. Recently mum has started to shake almost uncontrolably sometimes for an hour at a time. It is the first time I am witnessing what seems to be her really suffering. Is this experienced by anyone else. The consultant has said it is a frequent occurance by some people that become a distressed or worried. It is very upsetting to see, how can she be helped. We try talking calmly about anything, holding her hands and reassuring her that it will soon pass.
