My grandmother is 89 years old and had recently shown signs of dementia. I was wondering if patients often have "pain" that suddenly appears and disappears. Often severe and debilitating making her forget how to function. A pain in her shoulder will be so intense that she can not bring herself to move her legs.

Hi, no, that sounds serious and like something else. She should definitely go to the doctor and get that looked at. Could be a sign of something serious about to happen.
