DT's....anmesia, dementia, memory loss
My 67 year old dad has struggled with alcohol abuse his whole life....off on, off on...the DT's, rehab etc.
He is in the hospital right now with many health problems, but the DT's are also an issue.
The last time he could have drank was 12 days ago. He thinks is 1988, and that he is 47 years old. At times he thinks he is a child. He does not know where he is.
From what I have read about the DT's, the hallucinations seem to be more related to seeing bugs etc, and usually peak at 3-5 days after the last drink.
They thought he had had a stroke or a subdermal hemmorage, but they did an MRI, a CT scan and an EEG, results all normal.
The doctors are baffled and it's just kind of a wait and see right now.
Has anyone here heard of the DT's causing these types of symptoms, and so long after drinking?
Thanks so much,
