I just took my mother in to a neurologist to get a diagnosis for her short term memory loss. The MRI showed that she had damage caused by "several mini strokes" but there is no sign of Alzheimer's or dementia at this point. She is on blood pressure medication and her bp seems to be under control. Nothing else about her has changed other than her short term memory loss. Does anyone else here have any experience with this type of 'dementia'? The Dr gave her a Rx for an Alzheimer's medication, but I am hesitant to put her on anything that will further lower her bp...plus I don't understand why he would give her that when he said there was no sign of it. Any advice or related experiences would be helpful. Thank you!
