No scan, just tears... mother was in a nursing home for about 10 yrs she had been seeing a psyc for 40 years because she wanted the attention and drugs, I took care of her since I was an adolescent
Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 2 months ago

I see

that must have been difficult for you

you should see a doctor and get a brain MRI scan

regular exercise and eating healthy can help improve circulation to the brain which can help prevent dementia

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
