Last Sunday I was talking to my sister and she asked me something about the little shops that are just down the road from where we live. For about 5 seconds I stared at her blankly then said "I'm just trying to remember where we live". She said "You know, those little shops just down from you?". 5 more seconds of blank stare and I said "But where do we live?". It was then her turn to stare at me very blankly!!!!
It would have been a good 20 seconds or more that I COULD NOT remember where our house was or even picture what out neighbourhood was like. It scared me!
I have brain fog a lot but this was worse, somehow it seemed more sinister. Does anyone else suffer from momentary total memory loss?? I've been wondering if it means something more neurological that needs looking into, does it sound likely or is it just something associated with lupus?
And I'm only 31 so shouldn't be at risk of dementia!
