Just two weeks ago I had an MRI. Some changes in the white matter vessels, and my DR referred me to a neurologist. They did a bunch of tests and told me I have mild cognitive impairment. My first indication of possible neurological problems was that I lost my sense of smell. Then my son noticed I was having memory problems. Now I am going for work ups by a ENT DR and a assessment by a shrink. OMG is there any way to definitively diagnose Alzheimer's and dimentia? The neurologist stopped short of saying I have alzheimers, but said the indications are there.
Please anyone shed some light? I did some on line research and got more scared. Most sites are directed at the caregiver.
