  1. My mother has been diagnosed with Parkinson's for about 10 years. About five months ago, she started having these episodes she calls "fever face" where her face and neck flush blood red, she gets very hot, and her blood pressure spikes very high. These episodes can last for hours and often is accompanied by a headache, nausea, and frequent urination. She turns a fan on her, puts an ice pack on her face, bathes her face with a wet washcloth, and drinks ice water. We have been to the ER due to the blood pressure spikes and they put her on blood pressure medication which is not helping these episodes, even when she takes extra. She also takes anti-anxiety medication. She has been hospitalized and that did not work out as they took her Parkinson's medications away. So - now she just endures this but is not functional during these episodes. She just lies on the bed waiting for it to pass. None of her doctors (to date) have been able to tell us why this is happening, what to do about it, or if it could lead to a stroke. I appreciate any input that will help us understand what is going on here.
