My dad is 80 years old and refuses to go to a doctor. For a number of years if he can't remember something it keeps him up all night walking the floor. He can be trying to remember something of no importance such as the name of an actor or name brand of a watch ect. He will spend all night searching books for the answer and walking around the house. He says he has to be moving and can't lie in bed.  These attacks only happen at night and have been happening for about ten years. They have become more frequent and intense over the last year.I have done reseach on panic attacks and the length of his anxiety doesn't fit the symptoms. Does anyone have loved ones with Alzheimers that experience similar symptoms? Thank you in advance for your help.

Hi and Welcome to HW .
Does your dad have any other things hes does like becoming aggitated easily , angry or other character differencs that you have noticed????
I ask you this Sadie as I too will do what your dad does but not for as long I will keep trying to remember a name or something but again like I said not for the length he does .......
Is he living at is own house ,where is your mom ?
There are so m,any more things I would need to begin to even consider whether he may have Ad or not .Also it would be a guess based on personal experience and my Nursinfg background
my Mom had AD but passed away 8 mths ago My step dad has it and I am looking after him
There are resources in yellow at the side which may help you as well but please do post again I will always answer I am up in the mornings early as you can see
Hoping you have a good day and that I hear from you again
God Bless
