A Mum of a freind of mine has been having some memory problems for just over a year now. She has had several GP appointments, memory tests and two neurology appointments. (She had scans previously due to an unrelated fall, which they have used)
It has been an 11 month process so far. They have just had another appointment with a neurologist who has said they now need to do an MRI. All doctors have said they think it is a form of dementia or alzheimers but still no solid diognosis!
Is this a normal amount of time for it to take someone to be diagnosed?
