I am 54 year old female and have had a few troubling symptoms.
I was leaving a meeting at work a few weeks ago in my office and walked into the hallway and for about 10 seconds, I could not recognize where I was or where the cafeteria was. It was momentary but completely disturbing.
Once in awhile I seem to forget for a split second which house I'm living in. I flash back to a childhood house or to one of our past houses as an adult.
Is this an early sign of dementia? I am very worried.
It's best you check with your primary care physician and perhaps be referred to a nuerologist. Other instances can mimmick dementia when it's something totally different.
Don't worry, at least you are aware that something isn't quite right, and you're very young...I'm about your age and I have some memory lapses time to time but I'm being pulled left and right, up and down...it's a wonder my own brain hasn't crashed by now.
I agree with Sunny. There are many reasons for what you describe from medical problems to stress. Get a complete check up, express your concerns to your physician, and ask for a referal to make sure everything is ok. Then you will know what is going on Don't worry until it is time.....
