Hello everyone, I'm Brazilian and has just joined the forum. I've recently received the diagnostic of my youngest sister, and she has Alzheimer in the second stage. She is only 34, and as far as I could track, she was looking for help of neurologists since she was 28 with symptoms of headache, memory loss and excessive tiredness for her age, but any doctor could identify the problem, or pay enough attention to her symptoms, treated as burnout. Her symptoms of memory loss and difficulty of completing even common daily tasks got worse in the past 2 years. Last year she got pregnant, and after my nephew was born, last September, psychotic symptoms have exploded. Doctors have ignored her symptoms before the pregnancy, again, and she spent 8 months being treated as a postpartum depression patient, with a bunch of strong antidepressants and psychotropics. She got worse and worse, until last April, when she started having convulsion. For the fisrt time doctors have considered a neurological disease. I brought her to Sao Paulo, in a stage she could not talk, walk or even recognize her son, and after 40 days of dozens of exams and 30 days in a hospital, she went to a neueological surgery for brain biopsy that could clarify the diagnostic, confirmed by a genetic panelm Early Alzheimer. Genetic mutation of the PEGN1, which is known for causing familiar Alzheimer, though we don't have any previous similar case in our family. Sorry by the long story, but it is too difficult to summarize and deal, especially because there isn't much information in Brazil around Early Alzheimer. She is responding very well to the treatment with Donepezilla and therapies that includes music therapy, physiotheraphy and lots of religious support of any kind. However she is living like a child, with 24 hours care, and I'd like to help her more. I'm here looking for similar cases, to find information on how I can help her, and for mutual support.
