I would like an answer from Dr. Grimaldi, if at all possible. Input from others is also welcome. I am aware that it does cause low grade fever, weakness, listlessness, etc. My mother has moderate stage dementia and has had several episodes, but this is the first with the pysical problem described. She says she has no trouble breathing (like short of breath), but says she has pressure above her breast bone on the left side, she describes as a heaviness. We know she's having an episode, but don't know if she needs medical attention for the chest pressure. Please advise quickly so we can make a decision regarding medical attention at this time. Thank you!!!
