Mom is 73 with mild to moderate Alzheimer's disease. She has constant near death pain in chest, legs, stomach and temple. Before we took control she was eating extra strength Tylenol like candy. Do doctors prescribe placebo pills? She has had every test and seen cardiologists and gastro doctors and cat scans, no issues that are causing this constantly moving pain. If someone says they broke their ribs once, suddenly her ribs are causing extreme debilitating lay on the couch and cry anguish. Begs for pain pills. The AD is tough enough, but to have her wailing in pain despite all we do to try to get her to think about something else is wearing us out. And she fools new people who freak out, want to call the ambulance because she swears the pain is unbearable. They think we are cruel for not taking the pain seriously. comments suggestions are appreciated!
