Hello, my 84 year old healthy, independent living grandmother suffered a catastrophic decline two weeks ago. Her symptoms included hallucinations, weakness, and paranoia. These symptoms quickly progressed to an inability to walk, swallow, or communicate. She didn't have a fever, stiff neck, vomiting, or any of the other typical symptoms of meningitis. All tests for meningitis came back negative yet she left the hospital with that diagnosis. Now she is rapidly declining and is slipping into unconsciousness. We are desperate to find out what else might be going on and to start to treat her. She is in a skilled nursing facility and near death. No diagnosing is going on. We would appreciate any input.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
