I have long suspected hubby of having frontotemporal degeneration (similar age, odd behaviours, mood swings, rages ....). After lots of tests there is sleep apnoea and vascular disease, chronic ischemic changes in the brain showing up as white matter lesions etc
getting them to see a Dr is almost impossible. I spoke with both his GP and psychologist seperately with a list of dates, events, behaviours, what set them off
any signs and symptoms - when it started etc.
then the gp added some extra blood tests and brain MRI to his annual check up. Plus, I mentioned the chronic tiredness, night sweats, stopping breathing etc - so sleep apnoea test.
at least that was a start
