My wife has had Alzheimer's for about a year and she is now starting to get fits. Her arms and legs do not thrash about but her whole body moves as if she has had an electric shock. This also occurs when she is asleep. She is unaware of any of these occurences. Can anyone give me any help? The doctor just gives her aspirin. She is on Aricept but I think it is losing its efficaciousness for her. Her memory is getting poor but she is in very good spirits. Thanks everyone, Per.
