My mother in law has had several heart attacks in the last few months which has led to kidney failure (20% functioning). She is on hospice and we have moved her in with her daughter because she has become totally bedridden. In the last week or week and a half she has become very angry or agitated. I don't know if it is the situation she is in or I started thinking right now about maybe the ammonia level in her blood. Maybe that could be building up, but I don't know if it just makes you confused or if it makes you angry also. I would love some feedback on this.

Hey Ashley! Welcome to the kidney forum of healing well! Sorry you are having to experience this! My first few thoughts when I read this she in pain? Pain will cause a person to act in ways they very seldon act or can change a persons personality! Another thought is, has her medications changed? Anything new added or taken away? Sometimes while the body adjusts to new medications or adjusts to not taking a particular medication you can have what you descibe!
