Hello, I hope this is the right place to post. I’ve been looking for answers for what might be wrong with my mum, who has had occasional episodes of what seemed like psychosis; a couple of years ago when she was caring for my dad who died at home with palliative care, and then recently she had a fall a few months ago. She was briefly hospitalised (which stressed her out a lot) and found to have a heart issue - Atrial Fibrillation I think it was called, and she was put on some medications (for the first time in her life). She had an amazing recovery from the fall (physically) and from this shuffly walk she’d had, and seemed to be so much stronger, but I became quite alarmed because it seemed as if what had previously been general memory loss, with these occasional episodes (including hallucinations) - well she suddenly seemed to develop extreme dementia, within a week. I couldn’t believe what was happening to her, the physical improvement declined back to worse than before and she has been having almost constant hallucinations. I thought it might be a reaction to one of the heart drugs she’d been put on, but that has been stopped for a while now and although abated for a while, the hallucinations are now back with a vengeance. Sorry if this is too much information for a first post. It’s just that I found this forum and I’ve been reading about Dementia with Lewy Bodies (I think this is the name of it), as you can see I know nothing about this, but I’ve been trying to learn because Mum refuses to go to the memory clinic, and has found to be borderline on the Alzheimer’s tests she’s had. So she thinks she is ok. But she is not at all ok and I am beyond worried about her. I read about the symptoms of DLB and so many ticks there for my mum! The night terrors going back for years, the shakiness, apathy and depression - Mum was previously so happy, energetic and busy. Now she is a shadow of herself. I’m hoping to learn more here about how to help my mum and to find out more about dementia - i in no way could possibly know if she has this illness or not, but it seems uncanny that so many symptoms match my dear mum and her decline in the past few months. I don’t really know what to do next, whether to try and get a diagnosis for her, but she doesn’t want to think about it of course (so how...?), but there seems to be a wealth of information here and kind and supportive people, so I’m really happy to have found this forum because I’m feeling a bit out of my depth.
