Hi, my mother suffers from dementia. She has gone trough a lot. Almost every day I took her to the doctor. She underwent many tests and examinations. At the end, dementia was diagnosed. Some days ago I heard something about pseudo dementia. I never heard about it before. I am worrying that my mother may have that as well. Does pseudo dementia exist and what can you tell me about this condition?
