Hi, I’m new to this forum. My Mom, 75, was diagnosed with dementia in December 2013 and later with PCA (posterior cortical atrophy). Since Feb 2014, she has been complaining constantly about her legs and feet which give rise to a virtually minute by minute commentary which includes them “hurting” or “not being able to walk on them” (she consistently walks about half a mile a day with my Dad and the dog) or “dragging” or “being prickly”. She’s had multiple physical tests none of which show signs of anything physiological. Painkillers don’t make any difference. The medics are at a loss. They took her off Rivastigmine in February thinking that this might be the cause (the problems started well before Rivastigmine) – this resulted in no change to the legs / feet but a significant reduction in cognition which has not been recovered since she went back onto Rivastigmine about 2 months ago. My Dad and I don’t know how to respond any more - any form of distraction is short-lived. My question is whether anyone else has ever heard of such a thing and is there anything else that we can or should be doing to alleviate her symptoms. Could it be a part of the dementia and therefore to be lived with?
