Do you believe you, a family member, or friend may be suffering from NPH? Here are a few questions you can ask yourself or your loved one which may point you in the right direction.
A
• Do you feel your interest in hobbies & socializing has diminished?
• Do you find your family members are speaking for you?
• Do you have trouble initiating conversation?
• Do you have difficulty maintaining attention?
• Do you have trouble remembering things that have occurred recently (where you put your keys, what you had for breakfast, etc)?

B
• Do you feel that your feet are stuck to the floor when you walk?
• Do you have trouble keeping your balance when walking or turning?
• Have you experienced sudden falls without loss of consciousness?

C
• Have you experienced sudden urgency in urinating?
• Have you had urinary accident

If the answer is yes to at least one question in each category, you may have symptoms of NPH. Keep in mind that many patients with NPH are misdiagnosed as having Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and other forms of dementia. Therefore it is crucial that you seek out a center that specializes in this condition. Contact me directly for more information.
