My mother had an episode on Wed evening. She was talking and the words she was using were incorrect. She wasn't aware that she wasn't talking correctly. I asked her what she was eating and she said catsup, I asked her again and she said molasses. She was eating applesauce. She was walking around without any problems, no stumbling. She even had the ability to make me a cup of coffee, however the whole time she was talking, it wasn't coherent. My mom sounds like she's stoned or drunk when she's talking. No slurring though, but some slight hesitation when she's trying to think of the right words.
This is her third episode since the begininng of the year, that we know of. She doesn't remember what she was doing while she is having an episode nor is she aware of having an episode.
Twice at the hospital they checked her immediately for a stroke or TIA. Of which the results came back negative. She is on blood pressure, diabetes, and cholesterol medicines as well as a multivitamin. Is it possible that there could be a drug interaction with the medicines? and with foods she might eat? Has anyone heard anything like this before? Any help would be appreciated!
