But I still don’t remember then left the house saying which way to go home, I forgot.rnThen I’ll tell you this way, do you remember?rnHe said remember, then went home.rnA few minutes came back home and asked again for towels what’s wrong when you first arrived (I already remember)rnThen I chatted as usual and talked about towels like usual.rnSometimes people here even think that they have mental disorders because in the village they still lack insight, even though in my opinion they only lost their memory for a moment After that, it’s normal, I’m sorry to see it.rnThat’s often what her husband says.rnWhat kind of disease do you think?
Walaikumsalam, hello Siwisifs.
Complaints of suddenly forgetting as experienced by your brother can be caused by several conditions:
Alzheimer's dementia, which is cognitive decline that runs gradually and gets worse over time. This condition is associated with old age. Usually this condition occurs at the age of over 60 years, however, some patients aged over 40 years can also experience this condition. Common symptoms of dementia are easy to forget (forget the way home, forget that you have eaten, forget to put things) Vascular dementia, the symptoms are almost the same as Alzheimer's, the difference is the cause. Vascular dementia can be experienced by anyone, not necessarily the elderly, because the cause is blood vessel disorders, such as diabetes, stroke, and high blood pressure. head injury. Different from dementia, in head injuries, memory impairment occurs suddenly and is not progressive. etc. To ensure a definite diagnosis of the complaints experienced by your brother, it is recommended that you check with a psychiatrist. The doctor will conduct an excavation of complaints and appropriate physical examination. Treatment can be in the form of drug therapy or psychotherapy. While waiting for the schedule to meet with the doctor, tell other family members to always accompany your brother if he goes out of the house because it is feared that his memory will suddenly return.
That's all, hope it helps.
