Hi, My mom was hospitalized with a heart condition, and

Hi,
My mom was hospitalized with a heart condition, and out of sudden she started showing signs like: seeing things, seeing little kids, thinking that everyone wanted to hurt her, aggressiveness, yelling/screaming incoherent things, etc. She was taken to a neurologist and right away was diagnosed with alzheimer, and put on meds.

She started taking the pills, and about 6 weeks later (from when she got the symptoms), one morning she just woke up back to herself. She didn't understand what happened to her, feeling as she just woke up from a long dream. Since then all her symptoms just went away completely. Only that she seemed to have lost a lot of memory, but more like someone that have had a temporary amnesia. Slowly, she started remembering everything. Now she is literally back to her normal self.

I just never knew that alzheimer pills can do that for someone, and I wonder if she was just misdiagnosed, and should be taken off her pills.

I feel uncomfortable telling her Dr. that I think she was misdiagnosed. What should I do.

hello, my name is Trent and i am a 34-year-old, slightly overweight (around 50lbs over BMI scale for my height) male police officer. for the last 2 years, ive been dealing with ventricular bigeminy/trigeminy as well as extremely frequent PVC s, tachycardia and the occassionally supraventricular tachycardia. at times the chest pains have been so bad i have passed out and hit the floor. i have not been able to work since january 2010. i have been hospitalized for these symptoms 6 times in the last year and half. i have been through 2 cardiac ablations and have been tried on metoprolol, soltalol, amiodarone, dronedarone, and 3 other antiarrythmics that i cannot remember the names of. neither ablation worked, and the second one caused more damage then good. prior to the second ablation (march 2011), my ejection fraction was 45% and there was mild diffuse hypokinesia in the left ventricle. after the second, ejection fraction dropped to 38% and there was moderate global hypokinesia of the left ventricular segments. structural disease was ruled out in 2010 by angiography and echocardiograms as well as a cardiac MRI. so far, none of the 5 cardiologists i have seen have been able to isolate the cause of all of my symptoms. my biological father had a pacemaker implanted at age 35 after he suffered an MI. i believe he was diagnosed with sick sinus syndrome. i have inquired into the possibilty of having SSS myself, but again, no one has confirmed or disproved this. since the failure of the ablations as well as the failure of antiarrythmics, the cardiologists that i have seen have told me there are no further treatment optins other then a 3rd ablation. having been through 2 already, i am definetly not eager to go for a 3rd. am i candidate for a pacemaker or ICD type device? and what is causing all of this? i shoud mention that cardiomyopathy was originally suspected, but again, not ruled out or confirmed. i was drinking alcohol on a regular basis up until november, and have not touched a drop since. any advice you could give me would greatly appreciated! i am extremely eager to have my condition treated and get back to work!! thank you for your time, trent a c wright.
