My mom has AD and I think I could post a new question each day trying to figure things out and help her. I've noticed many things different with my mom and can't tell what is AD and what might actually be due to something else. Can anyone please share if you noticed similar things with your loved one? What I've noticed is her sense of taste is different. Things she used to like she now says taste weird, don't taste good or taste bland. She says she has numbness in her feet and fingers. Her PCP ruled out diabetes, and has tested her for other things which come out negative. She has pain from a torn hip tendon and even though she has tried PT and a number of pain meds, she still says her hip hurts and she never wants to leave the sofa. She has lost weight and has no appetite. She says she is frequently nauseus. Her PCP prescribed anti-nausea meds, but they don't seem to help. I thought the nausea might be a side effect of the pain meds (trying to reduce her dosage) but on occasion she will eat rather well. Her blood panels all look normal. So far, nothing physical has been linked to the cause of her symptoms. I feel bad for her because she is miserable and I cannot find any way to help her feel better. She takes an anti-depressant, but it has no apparent sign of working. My dad on occasion has gotten her to take a drive and get fresh air, but she doesn't seem to enjoy anything. I'm grasping for any solutions that might help. Sometimes I just wonder if all these things are her AD illness running it's horrible course?
