Medical Websites/References for elderly Diseases

  1. Mar 26, 2007 #1
    Does anyone know which disease will have these symptoms(or can provide me with references to old age or elderly diseases):

    During nighttime sleep,
    [0] speaking in tongue or native tongues that hasn't been spoken in years or not often or to distant family members who call once in a blue moon.

    [1a] acting like a child, but can hold coherent conversions.
    [1b] has blurred vision but can still hear and recognize voices

    [2] Slight Repetitive speech,

    [3] gagging and spitting up.

    [4] Doesn't remember any of this when they wake up in the morning.

    These symptoms have arisen recently in an elderly person in my life(age 65+)
    This person recently had eye surgery and has been on medication for that and diabetes and something else that i can't remember.
