Hi to all on this lovely sunny day.
I watched David Baddiel on tv last night and he spoke of his dad who has Alzheimer disease. He then explained there are several types and his dads type is called “Frontotemporal” .(Picks Disease)
Most of Davids explanation rang a bell with me, as in 2005 ((6 years before dx of ppms), my first MRI showed Cerebral Vascular Disease. My temporal horns had one larger than the other because the smaller one had shrunk.
I’ve just discovered a lot more about this and every sympton described matches my own symptons. It has worsened over the years and I am very frustrated as I hardly recognise myself. My family have noticed the personality changes and how I can easily fly into an impatient, sarcastic, impulsive person, never knowing from one minute to the next if this will happen. I have lost interest in life and I can easily isolate myself into my world. It’s frustrating and very upsetting having what feels like my brain taking a few days off and .
Does anyone have any suggestions? Has anyone heard of this disease, I can find no links to MS on the sites I’ve looked at but the similarities to my own cog fog are uncanny. Because of this, I would like to see a specialist who can confirm one way or another if part of my ppms is the cause or if I do have Picks Disease.
