My mum (advanced mixed Alzheimer's) is cared for at home, I know it would be the worst thing possible for her to be in a NH or hospital. This last week she has been so tired, sleeping almost all the time, but still getting up with support 8 times a night for the loo. She literally falls asleep between a bite of food / chewing / swallowing. The Dr thinks she might be having repeated TIAs so has stopped statins that she only recently started. Still on the memantine, and coproxamol for osteoporosis pain. Dr is very non-committal, of course, it would cause Mum too much upset to try to do a CT scan or go to a clinic etc. Does anyone have any experience with TIAs please? Will these carry on? Will they lead to a full stroke? I know there aren't any answers really but it's my way of coping.
