My Mom, 75, just fell and broke her hip Dec 27th. She also uses mainly her right eye closing her left, no hearing in her left ear, memory is not working well, losses her balance regularly, asking for her Mom deceased for years, happy one minute then depressed/angry-Snaps...this is not her normal behaviour at all.
Do these syptomns sound like she whould have a CAT to prove or disprove any possibilty of a Mild Stroke due to heavy Wine and Smoking?
Since she is hospitalized presently recovering form her broken hip, should they also test for a stroke?
Thanks for your time and experience :)
