Apr 8, 2012 · Dementia perhaps in Brain & Nervous System

Well here we have a totally new development. I went to work Friday at 7 and she was in bed…as per usual. Came home at 6 and she was up, had make-up on, had used the vaccum, washing cloths, staightend up the apartment and has basically been her “old self” for the past 3 days. Says she had Chronic Fatique Syndrome…looked it up on the computer and is now over it. I am just blown away… happy yes but very confused about why for the past 4 to 6 months she has been confused, sleeping, keeping the AC on 70, drinking ice water. no energy, and eating…gained 10 to 12 pounds and was prev. a picky eater. I know it’s Easter so maybe I should go to church….and proclaim…”She has Risen”. This is so bizarre. I have been giving her an antidepressant for the past 3 days but I have never seen anything like this. I am just blown away…..I’ll take it tho.

Easter Sunday…And she has risen!!!! Seems to be functioning normally for the past 3 days….not staying in bed, went for a ride yesterday, not as verbal as before but seems to answer all my questions, knows we meet the Elder Attorney tomorrow. She suddenly came alive the last few days. This is the most bizarre turn of events that I have ever seen….I should be happy and I am but I am also even more confused….I just don’t understand. She now feels she had Chronic Fatique Syndrome…and has just come out of it. Who cares? AR

Hi, Well don’t this beat all…I leave for work today at 7:30AM and get home at 6….guess what she is up, make-up on, like her old self, cleaned her closlet and had the washing maching on!!!!!! She says, “I just woke up…I’m feeling better, I looked on the internet and I must have Chronic Fatique syndrome.” She is now on the sofa watching Law and Order; says she has been up for most of the day…..now I really am confused. Not at all sure of what is going on….now I am the confused one. Will keep you informed. AR

One was dementia (type unknown), one was “hypometabolism in the pre-frontal and temporal areas, and one was depression. Settting up visit this next week with another “sharp” neurologist…..wondering if I should come to Mayo’s for an eval. She is in bed most of the day….how long does that last…we are into our 4 th month here. more later.

This early period is certainly very frurstrating…even the neurologist have given me three different opinions. Thanks Piglit

Devastating is the word….I am finding out that everyone has an opinion….and they are all different …..even the neurologists. Glad I am not confused….is this Monday?

Piglit…This total lack of energy with her staying in bed all day is confusing for me….what is that all about? and she drinks ice water all day and keeps the temp at 70!!!!! I’m freezing and she sweats. now the doctor we were referred to does not take our insurance. I still work 3 days a week and a co-worker asked how I was doing…said okay and cried the entire drive home. Why am I not having fun in our later years?????? Bummmer.

Hi Kathryn04, Sounds close…extreme fttgue…she sleeps most of the day, tries to get up and do something but then gets really tired and goes back to bed….not sure if she is sleeping but just lays there. This so different, it’s like night and day….and she doesn’t want to do anything….a total loss of interest basically. And the blank expression…I mean we look at each other and it’s like I don’t know her….huh…after 42 years!!!! She refuses to do any psych type of testing. a totally different person and of course each night I get blamed for whatever. Been to 3 different neurologists and guess what? Yep, 3 different diagnosis.
