a friend of mine was diagnosed with Pick's disease. One of the symptoms is aphasia. My friend constantly repeats anything you say over and over.
We think she is misdiagnosed.
Any ideas?

  • What specifically makes you think she was misdiagnosed? What do you think she has? Pick's disease is very serious. How did her doctor determine it was Pick's?
