Mum often feels like she has something on her tongue but theres nothing on it.
Mum will pull the skin on the end of her tongue trying to remove the thing that she thinks she can feel.
Mum can get quite distressed about it she even wakes up in the morning with this feeling.
Wondering if she's having dry mouth...could try one of the drops for dry mouth from dental aisle.
My mother dug out all the crowns on her molars because she felt like something was stuck in her gums. As the brain continues to deteriorate symptoms like this often occur. The dentist and doctors left it alone as long as it didn't interfere with eating.
My husband often spits and when I ask why he says there is something in his mouth--when I look there is nothing there
@A myALZteam Member I'm doing great. I get to travel more and spend time reading. I never took time to read for enjoyment. I was always studying Alzheimer's and ways to help Mom. I dream of her often as she was when we were kids. She was such a wonderful role model and had a great loving personality. My brother still struggles with his memory and driving. He argues all the time. He stays in bed all day, watching TV. His daughter has her hands full with a 5 year old too. She finally has started working with a Therapist to help her stress.
I hope your focus is on self care.
Have a awesome week.
