I’m sure I’m getting early onset dementia. Here’s the association between the two.https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1737362/
Check the side effects of the benzo you take. It’s probably that.
That’s a possibility
drowsiness, dizziness, problems with thinking or memory;
That’s me in a nutshell (haha I just realized why that’s funny)
Both my Mother and two Aunts suffer with Dementia.
I’m worried that I’ll get it.
Sometimes it feels like I have Dementia already.
Today I tried to speak and the words came out wrong.
I think it’s called Aphasia it’s a Dementia symptom.
Yeah I’m worried.
I understand your worry. Dementia is in my family too. I lose my words often. So often people who are close to me already know and fill in the blanks.
Benzo use have a direct link to alziemers and dementia in elderly. Even taking them at middle age and quiting shows an increase in them in elder years
I do try to limit my benzos use but it’s not easy when anxiety is way out of control. Since I started the Zoloft it’s improved a bit but last night was so bad. Benzos it is. I’m bound to get dementia anyway
I am also worried about it. I had a smaller brain on my MRI, so that is why I am worried. I am going in for a second MRI to see if it is something that is progressing (i.e. dementia) or is it stable (in which case I just have a weird brain - could have told them that without the scan, lol). I don’t have it in my family, just sz and related disorders.
I hope it all goes well
me too 15151515
