My mom's neurologist thinks she may have had a small stroke. Several weeks ago we went shopping in a nearby town. I went out to wait for her in the car. She pays for the stuff and comes out to the car. Puts the groceries in the trunk and puts the cart in the cart return. She gets in the car and is unually quit, with an upset look on her face. She tells me she just had an "out of body experience" where she does not remember the time between her checking out and reaching the car. She tells me she thinks she has had a breakthrough seizure (she has medication controlled epilepsy) and becomes really upset and starts having trouble speaking/understand. I call 911 and they take her to the hospital. The ER doctor (a useless man who told my dad he would need his gallbladder taken out, when in reality all he had were some really small kidney stones!) agrees that it was most likely a breakthrough seizure. Gives my mom some Diazepam and tells her to get a referral to see a Neurologist. She goes to the neurologist a week later and fails the memory portion of the test. doctor orders an MRI and EEG. EEG is going to be done on Nov 27 and they still have to schedule the MRI. She is going to be 58 next week and has been having memory "issues" for about a year now. Word substitution, "word salad", problems following a GPS (at times unable to figure out which road to turn on) and has almost caused wrecks by pulling out in front of cars twice (both times I was with her). She also told the doctor in the ER that she felt like she was about to pass out while we were going almost 70 on the freeway! She does have a history of Schizophrenia that required hospitalization multiple times, so I have no idea if that plays into any of this.
