I have observed changes in my wife over the years...to the point that I have researched the symptoms...Vitamin B12 seemed to help. Last year she had a traumatic event and while in the hospital her Doctor asked if she had dementia. I responded that it had not been diagnosed at that time. She has some typical mild symptoms...repeats, problems with planning, confusion, check writing, etc., but she is still functional. Some days are better than others. Others have noticed. Her primary physician finally asked her if she was having problems, so he set her up with a neurologist, and he scheduled a MRI. We met with the neurologist and this is when the problems began. They did a simple cognitive test, a few questions, she probably did 50%.....what day is it, write a sentence, draw a picture....When the Doctor came in, he pushed for me to say what I thought the diagnosis might be, explaining that he did not want to shock me. I could not believe that he expected me to state my thoughts. He insisted. I finally said I thought it might be Dementia and my wife looked at me in shock. He proceded to agree without any additional testing and prescribed medication. My wife was in disbelief and I couldn’t believe that he did not perform additional testing. It seemed insensitive. The medication caused severe nausua and vomiting, I called the office and they prescribed a lower dose but I have not administered it. She had another brain wave test in the mean time and they want a blood test. I am not sure how to proceed and it seems to me that the Doctor has not handed this correctly...Of course my wife does not believe him. I don’t know what to do.
