Tue, Jan 29 1:12pm · Rather worrying memory/processing symptoms at 23 years of age in Brain & Nervous System

Hello, and thank you! I am going to see a GP before Friday and consult with him, perhaps he can order tests or scans if necessary, until I can meet up with a neurologist if this is also deemed necessary by the GP. There is one symptom I completely forgot to mention: I suddenly have problems with speech that do not occur as often. While speaking ordinarily (not under any sort of pressure or stress), I may confuse syllables while speaking, result being I say slurred and meaningless words. While I actively focus on trying to correct my words after having mixed up the syllables the first time, the words still come out wrong, with another completely meaningless combination or order of syllables. I however neglected/forgot about mentioning this in my previous post because it happens less often, yet it is also becoming slowly more frequent. Thank you @lisalucier, and thank you in advance @johnbishop @IndianaScott @mamacita @justint95 @kyoto @jenniferhunter

Amazing insight! again, thank you very much for all the time and effort you are putting in order to provide me with potential answers. I am familiar with most of the things you just said (I am a psychology graduate, currently working under neuropsychologists). It happens that I saw an ophthalmologist frequently in the past period because I had PRK corrective eye surgery. I highly doubt it has anything to do with this, especially since my problems started occurring before the surgery? I am however not sure about your explanation concerning combining the images from the two eyes for stereovision: it makes complete sense but some of the "shifts" I am experiencing are shifts between objects that usually look nothing alike, and that would not explain other symptoms.

Again, I really appreciate your time, efforts and thoughts 🙂

Thank you very much for your answer, and the time you took writing it. I should definitely care for such early signs, and not prioritize politeness. I will try seeing a neurologist and if it does not work out urgently I will go to a general doctor. To answer you: I did not have any injuries. For around a week I had mild headaches that happened soon after eating but they disappeared now. Thanks again!

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.
