Mom has been having "crashes" (I have written about them in past posts). They last a couple days each time.
But..we have something new. She is having trouble swallowing. Throat seems to have phlegm. She isn't running any temperature. No congestion. No breathing difficulties.
She had a stroke 6 months ago and had a few months getting swallow function fully back. This has gone completely away over the last two months...and she was cleared by speech therapist. I don't know if that even has any relevance.
I can't figure out if I should get her to ER, wait 4 weeks for a doctor appointment, or what.
Anyone dealt with this? Any ideas?
