Thank you – I agree the cause is irrelevant if it doesn’t lead to a treatment option.

Both our our neurologists are convinced that the atrophy caused by MS is the cause of her decline. Our local neurologist, after some pressing about other causes, put my wife on Aricept for about 3 weeks. Aricept is used to treat Alzheimer. He told us we would see no effect if the cause wasn’t Alzheimer – which was the case.

My mother has both Parkinson’s as well as Lewy Body Dementia, so I am familiar with both. My wife’s cognition and confusion is much worse than my mother’s.

Again, thank you both.
