Please correct me if I’m wrong but from what I’ve researched ALS does not have any effect on the mind. I ask because my Dad has been hallucinating for the past 4 or 5 days. He says he is seeing things floating around, pictures moving etc. He tells me that he is moved from his room during the night (he is in a nursing home) and brought back in the morning. I’m trying to convince him he is having nightmares. He has been on lithium for about 2 weeks but I cannot find anything stating hallucinations are a side effect of that. A specialist is being scheduled to evaluate him soon. . Does this seem like something totally separate from his ALS as it does to me or could there be some correlation.
