Hi, all, I'm needing some input. Two days ago my mom with psp, suddenly started chilling and had a fever of 103' gave her Tylenol but that didn't bring her fever down at all!! Two hours later she was so weak , would softly answer me but also seemed a little incoherent, couldn't hardly sit up or hold her head up. She had a uti just a couple weeks ago and had just came off her antibiotics, had kinda the same symptoms then but not as high of a fever, this was worse, I feared possibly aspiration pneumonia, because although she drinks thickened liquids and soft foods, she coughs while eating and drinking. So this scared me..so I took her to the emergency room, ( which was our first trip ever ) they did chest X-rays blood work urinalysis, about 30 min after we arrived at the hospital her fever went away..and she was back to her ( normal ) self, all the test results came back fine!! I couldn't believe it... not that I wanted her to have an infection or any other thing going on, but I just could not believe how sick she was just a few hour prior, and now all fine. What the heck was that all about? Just wondering if anyone else has experienced anything like that, sure was strange.
Appreciate any input
