My mom struggles with issues of seeing my father as a woman. This generally happens in the evening hours. This agitates her quite often and she generally calls the children asking if we'd seen him. In one case, she was going to get in the car and drive to search for him.
In the past, we've immediately done a test for a UTI and found that, up to now, she has had one each time the hallucinations seem most severe.
Today, her results were she did not have one.
Her neurologist has suggested that she may suffer from NPH. She has extremely trouble walking. She has issues of needing to go to the bathroom quickly. It seems to take a long time for her to process information though her memory is quite sharp at times. The hallucinations seem to be happening nightly.
I'm researching now to see if NPH can be the cause of the hallucinations. I'd appreciate any information anyone might provide on this. We have an appointment next month to visit a neuro surgeon who, I assume, might recommend an MRI.
Thanks in advance for any info.
