My father has just been diagnosed with ALS. For several years now he has had weakness in one leg but he also has quite severe memory loss. We thought he had Alzeimer disease but the progression was very slow.

Over the past year my Dad has gone from a cane to a walker & now he uses a wheelchair. He has lost strength in his other leg & the EMG showed weakness in one arm and in the muscles along his spine from his waist to shoulders. The doctor said this couls affect his memory & thought process but nothing I have read says that.

Has anyone else experienced dementia with ALS?

Thank you.
