Hello, (wall of text incoming)
I'm new here and I've joined this forum mainly because of my mother. She is 59 and has for the past year been having memory problems, lost interest in eating healthy and exercising and stares blankly at the TV all day, and consistently makes this humming noise in her throat. We recently took her to the doctor after she got a blood clot in her lung and leg and he said that she has mild PD. The problem is that ever since she got back to the hospital I swear she has gotten worse. She always counts certain objects and keeps tracing patterns on the furniture. She has very little self-control and keeps buying sweets and soda, and is almost completely oblivious to her environment unless I say her name. Her speech has degraded to the point that now she can only say "what," "no," "yeah," and very basic sentences. She no longer enjoys any activities that she used to(checking her email etc). She also seems to have a bad case of dementia and just yesterday she was waiting outside the house when I came back from college and asked me to take her to the train station to go to Leeds, her hometown. Only problem is that Leeds is in north Yorkshire, and we live in La Habra, California. It's like she is a completely different person now, and I'm having trouble wrapping my head around it. It's putting a lot of stress on the whole family, as my dad is the only one working, so he has to take care of me, my two adult brothers, along with my mother. I have been searching for anybody I can talk to about this issue, and right now I really do need all the info I can on this terrible disease. Is there anyway to restore her memory or at least help improve it? Can this disease be cured naturally, or do we need special medication(Her current meds aren't helping at all.) Is there anyway to stop any of her current symptoms, such as the humming? I'm so sorry for this block of text, but I'm completely distraught at her condition and am out of options right now.
Thank you so much for reading
