13 years ago my mother's doctor suspected that she had the disease...she has most every symptoms of the disease and when they did testing and said that it was a possibility and that she'd need retesting as she was not bad enough for it to be worrisome yet.
She has not returned for testing but it's getting worse lately. She's very forgetful, sometimes she says things that just do not make sense and she has frequent muscle spasms and she's losing the ability to use her right arm and it appears as though walking is getting harder and harder. She is also progressively losing control of her bladder...she's only 40 years old!
I'm so worried for her, she is scared and I just don't know what to say and she refuses to go back and get tested again. Things are just getting bad, her forgetfulness and inability to use her right arm are starting to affect her in many ways and it's scary when I'm not around to assist her...I worry every day when she drives to work and I just don't know what to do :(
What can I do for her? How can I persuade he to see the doctor and what are the best things to say to someone that is frightened of a disease they may have or do have? I am scared to say the wrong thing as she is obviously very emotional.
