My Dad is 70 and started having strange spasms back in November. He said they started in his head and **** through his body lasting for about 2 seconds. Back then he refused to go to his doctor because he had a trip to Australia planned and didn’t wan to be told to cancel it. When he got back from his trip in January he went to the doctor and his blood tests can back fine. The doctor told him to leave it a while to see if it improved. Since then the situation has got so much worse. He is having spasms at least 20 times a day, he has severe memory loss and can’t remember what happened yesterday or who people are. He has lost so much weight and has no strength at all - even struggling to cut a sandwich. He tells me that he has a neurologist appointment for August but i think he urgently needs help before then. The problem is he lives 2 hours away from me, he refuses to go to A&E and he won’t give me his GP’s details. Short of physically dragging him to a hospital, how do I get him some help? I’m so worried and feel totally powerless.
