My mom is still in the initial stages of diagnosis, but the neurologist suspects vascular dementia, v.s alzheimers. She has definite memory loss, and periodic weakness/wobbliness that seems to go along with her bad memory days. It has come on rather suddenly since last spring, or at least gotten much worse quite quickly.
Last week she developed sudden hearing loss in one ear. We took her to her doctor's urgent care clinic (as directed by her docter) and they couldn't find anything obvious so she has been referred to an audiologist. My sister and I suspect there is probably a connection between the hearing loss, and what is going on that is causing the memory loss and wobbliness. And I have found an article that says this can happen.
Her primary care doctor is aware of this so we are pursuing all the medical things.
In the meantime, I was just wondering if anybody else has experienced this. Did the hearing ever improve?
