Often Forget The Lack Of Activity In The Elderly?
Hi doctor, .. My mother rarely take a bath because she often gets cold when bathing, every hair combed must be sick and her hair falls out … And my mother rarely moves, often forgets, is emotional, is slow to move, and always sits quietly …
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Of the various complaints that you submit, it is likely that there are two or more conditions of illness experienced by your mother, including:
Allodynia conditions, or pain that arises even though a stimulus that should not cause pain such as combing
Peripheral nerve disorders
Which of these possibilities is still very much able to develop with the exploration of history, interviews, physical examination and deeper support. There may be important information that was not known to the family before, or information that is misinterpreted as a certain condition, such as whether the pain when combed is actually the condition of his hair so that it is pulled hard enough and causes pain, or hurts even though his hair is already soft enough. For this reason, we recommend that you consult your mother to a neurologist or may see a general practitioner first to get these examinations. Handling given will depend on the results of the examination.
Meanwhile, because it's still not very clear what condition your mother is experiencing, don't leave her alone and there is at least one person who is always watching her. Pay attention to his behavior and actions so as not to endanger himself. Also try to listen to what you want, and ask what he thinks. So, hopefully answering your question.
