Could it be stress? I'm in menopause. (48). Sometimes, if I sleep during the day, I wake up and I have to look down at my clothes to see if it's nighttime or day time. If I'm off and I wake up in the morning, I do the same thing. I get my days confused. Is it Monday, Tuesday? Like that. I forget passwords on my computer accounts. Sometimes I have to change them within seconds of each other because I forget! I'm scared.
I'm not a trained medical professional,but I can share my personal thoughts n opinions. It could be stress,I do know that I've experienced the same. Especially when I haven't slept and or slept well. Being alone & not working can really complicate it even more so. I stayed confused with dates n time! Lots of stress/worry n faugte can contribute to losing track of time. If I don't have a schedule I can get pretty lost. THERE'S MANY FACTORS TO LOSING MEMORY THAN GETTING Alzheimer's. I think my first experience was when I too was going through menopause. And I'm dealing with it now, but on my defense, I've been going through a lot of personal drama again. Try not to worry to much about it. If it continues to be a problem for U,please call your doctor for an appointment?! Life can be hectic n overwhelming sometimes! So again I say:less worry,less stress, I know... easier said than done. Best wishes n please keep Us posted?
Hi, i would recommend you see your doctor to convey your concerns, but don't worry too much in the meantime, it could be a result of menopause... when my mum went through the menopause she suffered very similar scenarios as you have written about. I know it can be scary, and i too would be worried, but this could all improve with time. There are tests for Alzheimer's that you doctor can use to determine if this is the cause of your memory issues, but hopefully that is not the case...
