My husband has an ABI as a result of contracting encephalitis over twenty years ago. Now he is a 'gentleman of a certain age', the doctors seem to have dismissed the encephalitis and some even question whether it ever happened!!
They seem to be trying to 'make him fit' what they think they know most about. They are ignoring the side effects of the ABI and are suggesting that he has dementia, although non of the tests indicate/confirm this. I was asked by the doctor to research Picks disease and then let him know what I thought. My husband doesn't fit the Picks profile. Despite feeding this back to the doctor; he is sticking with his theory/diagnosis - Frontal temporal lobe dementia (FTLD) Isn't this also known as Picks?
