We recently went to a new Neurologist because we could not understand the 1st one he was going to and also he was not doing anything to help him. The new doctor began giving my husband the mini tests and asking questions, so my husband perked up and answered them as quickly and correctly as anyone could. I was SHOCKED!
For over a year he has been going downhill almost daily, can't locate anything in our home, looses all of his personal posessions and can no longer drive. He can't order from a menu, gets lost in buffets, he wanders around until he sees me then gets a big smile on his face and walks to our table. He mixes up his medication box and forgets if he has taken his pills. He loves the computer, has for years played games on it but now tells me he can't remember how to do anything on it. Also he looses concentration with things such as a TV show. He can't remember how to go to local places we have been to many times in the past.
Also, I have even called 911 once because he was so angry with me he was throwing things at me and said he would kill me. I did not know why he was angry, we had not said or done anything to make him get upset.
How could he change so quickly in front of this new doctor and act normal?
We have been married 50 years and I am very confused. Any suggestions?
