I'm a 28 year old male, i've had anxiety and ocd for 17 years. About 3 years ago i drank alot one night and in the morning my ability to articulate my thoughts was not good. I never recovered completely from that. For the last year i've been doing alot better and my brain has been working well. But 2 weeks ago i was smoking a cig and i felt out of breath my heart was pounding and i was very lightheaded. I felt very spaced out since this happened plus my memory and thinking ability has been diminshing. I went to the er 2 days ago and of course the doc dismised it for anxiety. Well my memory and problem solving skills are not going back to were they use to be. I'm afraid i had a stroke which caused brain damage, or could this be an early onset dementia. I hope someone could give me advice Thanks.
Thank you for your advice. I've experienced kind of brain fog symptoms in the past associated to anxiety, but this seems different i having trouble recalling what happened yesterday, plus trying to figure out grocery shopping has become difficult. I hope it anxiety because if this does not get better i don't know what to do. But thank you for your advice and reassurance, I'm going to try to see a neurologist, hopefully he can figure out whats going on.
i to have been where your at, and even to this day if i forget something, i get really nerves about it and than i start to forget more, the more you have on your mind the more you will foget. and yes on the fog i felt a little like that today. so yes get checked but am sure your just fine keep in touch.
