few days ago but all of sudden she is unable to communicate and confused. Actually she has taken herbal tea continously for 6 days(1 cup) N after that she urinates frequently n can not walk or sit properly she needs support for that.. nd she is unable to communicate too She is just answering the ques we asked to her in yes no or in few words There is weakness.she is not expressing herself and dun talk or chat with us like she do earlier
Kindly help as soon as possible m really very worried
Once there is an infection, and in Mums case she would 'wipe' from back to front not the other way round plus she had a prolapse which didn't help any too much, then there is bacteria present and they multiply at an incredible rate in warm moist areas. Add to that leakage then what happens is that there is a build up of bacteria in a dehydrating body setting - effectively increasing the bacteria's strength and building a toxic soup if you like. Once the strength reaches toxic levels then delirium will almost certainly occur in the elderly because we already know that toxins interfere with signals to and from the brain.
Now I have absolutely no idea whether this is accurate but it is how the consultant explained it to em and it did sorta make sense.
Thnx all for the info.
I would keep in close touch with the doctor and if she doesn't improve, take her in to see him again.
And she z nt tkng herbal tea nymore
Doc. Z saying may be it is coz of herbal tea she has consumed bcoz it contains chemical and caffeine but thing m worried about is she is not communicating with us only . Itz been 4 days
She is not frightened or unmanageable
She understands everything recognize us nd laugh too when we crack jokes.
M nt able to get the logic how thid infection is related to brain
My mom's friend had UTI and antibiotics and then quickly progressed to catatonic, incoherent, and coma, death. My mom had UTI that progressed to psychotic episode.
So yes, UTI in elder can have those symptoms you described.
Its been two days nd she z urinating less but no improvement in communication and weakness
Can u tel me dat is it due to that herbal tea
Nd shd i go for citiscan
