Many times as symptoms begin to appear, it is easy to think that the symptoms may just be part of the normal aging process. You might even dismiss the symptoms as stress-related. Everyone experiences momentary episodes of forgetting where we put things or walking into a room and forgetting what we need. However, when the symptoms are happening on a frequent basis it is important to go to the doctor. These symptoms are not part of the normal aging process and they are not stress related. Keep a detailed record of the symptoms experienced, as well as the date and time they occur.
