My father is having issues that seem to me and my mom like alsheimer's.
He: has severe mood swings
forgets what he said and says he said something else. He then gets VERY angry when you tell him what he said
he's lost some fine motor skills
he gets, what I call, "the shakes" in his arms/hands
As far as the forgetting what he says bit- Just yesterday he said one thing multiple times to multiple people and then said he didn't say that, he said something else. He then got REALLY ANGRY when we (FIVE of us) told him what he DID say.
Does this sound like alzheimer's to anyone else? I used to be a CNA in nursing homes, so I am VERY familiar with alzheimer's, but I want other peoples' opinions too.
Also, he's very, very proud. He would never willingly go to a doctor about these issues.
