Elderly mother just not feeling well, but she has no specific symptoms. How do I know what it is?
My mother is 78, she has had recent problems with her short term memory but what is more concerning is that she says she is not feeling well but cannot express what is wrong. My dad has taken her to the doctor, urgent care, ER and her labs come back okay but she is not getting better and we do not know what to do. It could be depression, because of the memory loss, but she says she just doesn't feel good, she will sit on the couch with the TV on and close her eyes. She still gets herself dressed nicely, fixes her hair, makes her bed and makes coffee, breakfast but does little the rest of te day. She says she just doesnt feel well. My dad doesn't know what else to do for her other than to take her to the doctors. Any one have any ideas on what we can do??? I know this could be the dementia, depression or both but how do you know for sure.
