Is extremely bad memory any kind of sign of Alzheimers or future problems?
I ask because my brother has EXTREMELY bad memory. I mean, he forgets names and what he did days before sometimes. He is only 27, never did drugs or anything. He is brilliant at times, but I find it incredibly disturbing he could forget which movie he saw the next day. He is super successful at his job. Is athletic and an all around nice guy. But this seems odd.
Alzheimer's can affect younger people too, especially if there is a family history. Personally I know quite a few people with bad memories, short term memories. These days with our busy lives it can also be a result of having far too many things to remember. Important things to do with work or family will take priority over a persons name or a movie. I can't tell you the number of times I've forgotten what I had for dinner the day before or went to the supermarket for a particular thing, only to forget what it was when I get there. Stress or tiredness can also affect the memory.
The only way to know for sure is visiting your doctor. There's all kinds of medication to slow the process down.
Perhaps your brother just has a very busy life as you say he's super successful at his job and simply doesn't remember things that aren't important simply because they aren't important and don't really matter to him.
I am only 22 and I had extreme memory loss. I was always busy with a million things on my brain. This could be the cause. I recommend him trying some all natural memory builders like Nutrillite Memory Builder. This is what I take right now and it is working for me. If you or him want to learn more about it just shoot me an email firstname.lastname@example.org or email me here on hub pages.

As in Alzheimers, if you lose memory of who you are and of everyone you know, are you still you?

I am the caretaker of my 72 year old father. I am wondering if he may have Alzheimers onset.He is mean to me and my mother. He yells at both of us. We can't do anything right. We don't answer his questions to his satisfaction, or talk loud enough for him to hear, or we are too loud! If I...
