Hi, I've posted a few times before. My mum is 58 years old & currently awaiting referrals and tests, seeking some sort of diagnosis. She is being seen by a neurologist for symptoms relating to alzheimer's but also a separate issue that at present is seen as more urgent. In brief, my mum has had some memory issues since last summer which at first we thought was due to lack of sleep as she has other health issues, in November she was admitted to hospital with severe confusion, mri showed some loss if spinal fluid but nothing showed relating to alzeimers, fast forward nearly 5 months & things have deteriorated very quickly. She sometimes isn't aware of what day it is, she relives memories from the past that she thinks are happening in the present & becomes very upset & distressed, she has very poor word association at times, she is exhausted constantly, her personality has changed & she can be quite unreasonable about things that wouldn't normally be an issue. In the last few week's I've also noticed her hearing seems to have deteriorated & she staggers & walks much slower than normal. The neurologist was aware of some of this when she was seen last month. I'm just feeling so frustrated that we don't seem to be getting any referrals at present to gain any answers. I think it's alzheimer's that she has, she is frightened herself as she sees the changes. In a way sometimes I feel like I'm the parent & it's Heartbreaking to watch & I feel helpless as we have no answers yet. I guess I'm just looking to see if anyone has or is going through similiar. I don't know where to turn for support.
