What a wonderful site this is! I am 35 years old and live with/care for my wonderful gram. Her mind is great but her body is shot. Over the course of the past month, she has these sudden (and completely without warning but do happen more frequently after she has been out to a Dr. appt.) 'episodes' whereby she gets extremely cold, visibly shivers, is nauseous, may throw up and has no strength. Typically she is able to walk to the bathroom and toilet herself. However, when she has these episodes she is completely unable to stand and my husband has to lift her onto the potty chair. This all happens within the first hour of the episode. She is also confused and disorganized during this time (unsure of time of day, who is home and sometimes can't remember the early hours of these episodes. Over the course of the next day and a half, she has no appetite, drinks little but gradually regains her strength and is completely back to normal within 48 hours. It always happens the exact same way. The Dr. says it's not small strokes. Her heart is fine. She's had tons of blood work that has been fine. A recent urine test showed high levels of protein in her urine, more blood tests were ordered and we are awaiting the results. Does this sound familiar to anyone? They have increased in frequency and are happening every week. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!
