Rather worrying memory/processing symptoms at 23 years of age
I have sudden memory and attention problems getting worse, I have no disabilities nor depression. I am perfectly healthy and have no relevant or noticeable physical symptoms. Recently, I experience (what can somewhat be called) agnosia and my vision has been tricking me although I have 20/20 vision: things that were there suddenly appear in my vision and I may mistake words for completely different words even after repeated reading, and I may wrongly identify an object I see and my vision of it shifts into what the object really is as if my switching is shifting from angle to another in the Necker cube illusion. For example, I may put two pieces of clothing next to one another to try to see if the colors go well together, but it would take me long to decide because I cannot process the information I see and have to pay extra attention “focusing.” I kept reading the word “Verified” as “Verifida” although it was in a perfectly clear font and contrast, and only a while later did I SEE it was in fact “verified,” even though I did re-read many times. I mistook frozen blackberries in a Tupperware for beaded bracelets (???), but once again my vision “shifted” and I could see they were blackberries. Sometimes, it takes me long to “see” (more like process the presence of) objects that were right there in front of me. The nearest appointment at a (affordable) specialist is not any time soon.
