Hi all. I'm a somewhat regular over on the prostate cancer forum, but am checking in here for some words after the awful conversation I've just had with my best buddy and college roommate.
his 54 yr old wife has had vision problems for about 18 months. The neurologist they last saw said she was positive that the cognitive deterioration she has experienced is AZ. She has very low energy, all her adrenaline is depleted within an hour of awakening. She can't process any visual stimuli and will get lost out of the house if her "guide" is more than 5 feet away. Her memory is still ok, but degrading.
Has anybody anywhere seen symptoms like this for a patient so young? The optimist in me says that she is suffering from something yet to be properly diagnosed. They live in central PA and do not have easy access to top-notch doc's or hospitals.
Thoughts? Comments? Anything?
