5 Early Signs of Alzheimer’s Disease!
Bertrand Russell, a British philosopher once said “A smile happens in a flash, but its memory can last a lifetime”. Sounds good, right? Now, imagine a scenario where a person’s brain is getting blighted by each passing day, ultimately affecting the memory.
Yes! you get it right.. Alzheimer’s may be the cause.
Although there are plenty of other conditions affecting memory, Alzheimer’s is the most common one, especially in the elderly.
In an effort to raise awareness about this condition, this World Alzheimer’s Day, we bring the details for uncovering the signs of Alzheimer’s affecting your mental sharpness or maybe your loved ones.
The 5 early signs are:
1. Messy Memory
It is the most common sign which occurs at the earliest onset of this condition. Are you or your loved one forgetting information more than normal? Is it difficult to remember past events, certain names, or tasks? Are you getting reminded of things more frequently? Then, it’s the right time to consult your doctor.
2. Planning Problems
Some may have a problem with making a schedule and then sticking to it. One might find it hard to complete a task or even concentrate. Trouble in following a recipe while cooking or keeping track of your bills can also be the reason.
3. Difficulty in Daily Tasks
Alzheimer’s sufferers often find daily tasks tough to complete or might take more time than usual. Safe driving, cooking your favorite meal, making a grocery list, remembering your traveling route all become difficult.
4. Communication becomes Complicated
Remembering a word becomes hard, speaking becomes worried, and communicating with others becomes a struggle. Alzheimer’s affects an individual’s communication/conversation skills. One might stop in the middle of a conversation, repeat themselves, or recall things by wrong names.
5. Mood Swings and Misplacing Things
Confusion, depression, anxiety, and suspicion are all common among the patients. A person can quickly get angry and irritated from being calm. They often misplace things and have difficulty in finding the items. Often, they’ll start blaming or accusing others of their belongings.
Alzheimer’s may come slowly, may progress slowly, but as time progresses the problem becomes worse. If you see these signs, don’t ignore them and visit the doctor. More early the diagnosis is, the better the management for Alzheimer’s; benefiting both, the sufferer, and the family.
