Watch Out for These Early Signs of Alzheimer's
 
Alzheimer's is a disease and type of dementia that affects millions of Americans. It can be a struggle for both you and your loved ones if you are diagnosed with the disease. It complicates simple tasks and can deeply affect your memory. In the following, the early signs of Alzheimer's are discussed. If you or a loved one begins exhibiting some of these early signs, then you should immediately visit a doctor.
 
Mood Changes
Extreme mood swings can occur in individuals with Alzheimer's. You may begin to feel more confused, depressed, anxious, or fearful about certain situations. Individuals will openly display irritation in uncommon scenarios.

Memory Loss

You may begin to forget important dates like birthdays and holidays. If you're requiring frequent reminders about significant days, then you may need to consult your doctor. Forgetfulness is a noticeable early sign of Alzheimer's.
 
Problems with Familiar Tasks
Concentration becomes an issue. Individuals exhibiting early symptoms may find that they need to utilize their critical thinking skills for the most basic tasks. This also progresses as the disease does. Your daily tasks may take longer and longer while requiring intense concentration.
You may also find that people will have issues following plans or keeping to their commitments. Arithmetic may also prove troublesome. For example, an early sign can be that an individual is displaying difficulties with prior tasks like paying off bills.
 
Lost Time
You may find that you're beginning to lose track of specific dates. You may also feel as if you are confused by the passage of time. People with early signs can sometimes find it difficult to make any real future planning. The symptoms of Alzheimer's can progress to the point where people can completely forget where they are and when it is.
 
Loss of Vision
A common early sign of Alzheimer's can be deteriorating vision. You may feel added difficulty reading or judging distance. Alzheimer's can also affect your perception of things around you. Additionally, it may affect your ability to distinguish between different colors and contrasts.
 
Indifference
People with Alzheimer's will begin to become more withdrawn from social situations. You may even begin displaying symptoms of intense depression.
 
Fatigue
Alzheimer's can cause you to feel a lot of fatigue. Both mental and physical. This can be so severe to the point where you stop taking care of your personal hygiene or even changing your clothes on a daily basis.
 
Communication Issues
It may be difficult for you to start or join in conversations. Repetition of words or sentences can happen. Individuals suffering from early symptoms of Alzheimer's can lose their place in conversation or even suffer from vocabulary loss. They may forget the meanings of certain words.
Unfortunately, medical researchers are still unaware as to what causes early onset Alzheimer's. It is thought that genetics come into play, but for only 5% of those suffering from it.
