    happening to me for 20 years now, if it was Alzheimers I would have graduated to a very severe state by now.

    You could always get tested by your doctor.

    So dont worry.

    I don't know how Alzheimer’s feels, but I can feel the fogs coming on and know when they're going to hit. It's a surreal feeling that starts at the top of my head and just overwhelms me and I don't believe that Alzheimer’s patients get the same feeling.

    I know that doctors have told me in the past that it is not alzhiemre's but I just keep getting worse all the time.
    I started taking ginko biloba, does that help at all? I just started it about 2 weeks ago!

    Heard on the news that Gingko Biloba was not proven helpful for memory loss. Sorry to be the bearer of that news. Does anyone else out there take it and see any improvement?
