parkinsons delrium

I am the caretaker of my Mom who has Parkinsons disease. For awhile now my Mom has these what I call episoses, She goes into a delrium state that can last for 1 to 4 hours. The Dr first told me it was lewy body demensia then he said it wasn't. They don't know. I get passed back and forth to many different DR's.
She does get a lot of urinary tract infections and once on antibiotics it helps. But I noticed when I was trying to give her a pill in the middle of one of these episodes that her hands were shaking really bad. I am beginning to wonder now if she needs more Sinemet. I know this is not demensia. Something is causing this. Has anyone else experienced something like this? Any thoughts woudl help. I am at the end of my rope.

Thank you
Laura
