cookiebutter Posted January 30, 2022 Share Posted January 30, 2022 Hi guys, I'm new here and need some sort of advice and reassurance. My 86 year old grandma had a non traumatic intracerebral hemorrhage that required no surgery, just seizure medication bc 2 weeks ago she was hospitalized and I believe they misdiagnosed her with just high blood pressure and dementia because after having a severe headache. A few hours later she just got severe memory loss to the point she couldn't remember her name or how to sit on the toilet. She's had every once in a blue moon seizures so I thought her confusion meant an oncoming seizure. She didn't have one so I called 911 and they only kept her for 7 hours and released her with new blood pressure medication and said her memory loss was dementia which I didn't believe! A week later she had a seizure and when she went to the ER they found a hemorrhage but they said it wasn't in a major area and they believe it will heal on its own. They kept her in ICU for 3 days. Since she's been home she can't walk, lift/move her legs,or turn over in bed. She has no appetite and gets full off 3 strawberries, and on and off memory loss and even hallucinations. She has bruises on both legs and on arm the doctor said they didn't look like bed sores and weren't in typical bed sore areas of the body. Are those symptoms normal or should she go back to the hospital? Has anyone else had these symptoms? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
