My 75 year old mom had sudden onset of double vision, extreme confusion one day last summer. At first.. thought dehydrated or something.. after drinking pedialyte she was a little better.. took her to her dr, they sent her to neurologist and he found a meningioma on brain. Took her to eye doctor..eyes had no change from the previous visit. She started having pass out spells, thankfully the first two me or my son were right there and caught her so she didn't hit the ground.. the 3rd time she passed out she wasn't so lucky.. fractured skull and 3 brain bleeds..we are extremely lucky she's still here! Neurologist says she's having seizures when she has those spells. The reason I wrote all above is maybe someone has been through something similar .. I've told this to every dr and nurse that will listen.. all I get is.. that's odd. For the symptoms to just show up one day out of the blue.. it's just odd in my opinion. So, if anyone can offer anything .. I'd love to read! Mom's home now..I live with her because she can no longer live alone. I'm married with one child still at home.. work full time.. to say it's been stressful is an understatement. Times like these.. you find out you're all of a sudden an only child! Thankfully I have a wonderful mother in law and an ex sister in law that helps out a lot!
