Need advice on 89-year-old female with partial complex seizures.
Took my mother in law to ER approx 4 wks ago with one of her episodes. They admitted her. Neurologist diagnosed partial complex seizures & put her on Keppra 2x's day. Since then she's have absence seizures everyday, sometimes multiple ones. Her bp is all over the place from 194/92 to 80/43. She doesn't lose conciousness, cardiologist doesn't think it's heart related. She's gone from being an active, vital woman, to a shell of herself. It's heart breaking and no one wants to do anything. Home health advised me to take her back to ER and make them admit her and not leave until they run every test they can. Where can I find information on tests to run? I'm at the end of my rope because this should not be happening! She does have early Alzheimer's and macular degeneration as well as heart disease. The only handicap she's ever had until now is her vision. Where can I turn?
