Thanks for the valuable inputs.
Well you see with chief complaints restricted to loss of sense of direction there are 3 main differential diagnoses which can be considered such as --
1) Attention Deficit Disorder ( ADD), quite possibly of mild to moderate variety since only loss of sense of direction is effected.
2) Topographical Disorientation which is described as a condition where in the individual looses sense of his surroundings which often result in difficulties in finding paths / routes and often getting lost. But this disorder is usually associated with localized organic brain damage which is not the case as per your own admission.So this disorder is most likely ruled out as the underlying cause of your problem.
3) Dementia but this disorder has other significant features as well such as forgetfulness, poor recall and language problem, etc which you do not have plus this disorder is mostly associated with middle to old age people, so this disorder too gets ruled out as the cause.
So you see out of 3 plausible disorders only 1 disorder that is ADD seems to be the most appropriate for justifying your condition, so I reckon that you get yourself evaluated for ADD from a clinical psychologist or a psychiatrist and get this disorder confirmed or ruled out , any which way you will get a direction to move in at the end of evaluation. If you do not have ADD then you can just consider this as a result of your callousness and absent minded personality which can be dealt with by using meditation therapy.
But if ADD comes out to be the culprit, even then should not panic as this condition too is treatable with the help of drug. Ritalin at dose of 5-60 mg / day in two divided doses or Adderall xr 10-30 mg / day as a single dose can be used to manage your ADD.
So first things first kindly get yourself evaluated by a clinical psychologist or a psychiatrist for ADD. Also investigations such as EEG and CT scan brain may be carried out by discussing it with your primary doctor to rule out any organic pathology that may be contributing to your condition which can only be an early sign for us to take note of an inevitable future severe condition.
If no organic pathology is found after doing EEG and CT scan brain and if ADD comes out to be the reason behind all of this then you shall ask your doctor to start you on any one of the above mentioned psycho-stimulant drugs which will take care of your current problem.
I hope this helps.
Wish you all the best.
