My Mum was taken into hospital three days ago (Wednesday) with intermittant muscle spasms and she can no longer stand unaided. The hospital have checked her out and she is physically fine, but she has been taken off Aricept and her anti depressants just in case they are the cause. Her consultant has said he doesn't think Aricept is the problem, but they can't find anything wrong with her. Has anyone out there heard of anything similar? She is extremely distressed as she does not know where she is. Can anyone offer any advice? My Dad cares for her full time, but can;t cope with getting her to the loo on his own. When she comes out, if she can't walk or stand unaided what will he do? Any ideas? This is the first time I have posted to this forum, I really hope someone will help.
