Hi im a 31 year...
Hi im a 31 year old male, and as of late i find that im slurring words, or saying things i havent meant to and correcting myself. Top of my head hurts at times. Feel like i have memory loss. (Used to have phenomenal memory) try to remember movies. Trying to remember actors names or songs. Feel tired when i take a nap. Or doze off even when i hear things around me. I have the wierdest dreams. And dont remember them after? Like a second after. Its worse at night. But happenes to me twice today. I really feel like im lossing my mind. Really scaring me.
