ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
Memory problems- Long term- I cant remember things clearly that happened years ago. Memory problems-Short term- sometimes I cant remember what my husband told me 5 minutes ago. Other- There is so much with this. Im having problems with telling where I am at in compared to other objects, im confusing things like when driving confusing reverse and drive, I am coming up with the wrong word like instead of dishwasher I said microwave. Im having more intense periods of memory loss I dont what else to call it but episodes. One of them I forgot my husband and daughters names. Im having trouble rememerbig how to spell, write narratively and sometimes even reverse letters like I am dyslexic but I am not! I am running into walls because I can't tell where they are in relation to me. I had to stop driving, volunteering and pretty much stay at home by myslef. I have had many tests done.I have also had personality changes. My husband was the first to notice that. I believe I have early onset Alzheimers because I am having the same symptoms as my mom and grandmother. My mom never got a diagnosis before she passed away, my grandmother did and that was early-onset Alzheimers. My neurologists keep on insisting its something else. Some of the testing is abnormal and some is normal. I need to know what is going on so I can seek treatment.
