For a few months now I've had an interesting but worrying symptom.

I was thinking about a town I knew in The Highlands of Scotland, where we used to live. I then started thinking about where I now lived in Kilmarnock, about twenty miles from Glasgow. The thing was in my mind, Dingwall was now just down the road as a suburb of Kilmarnock. Is this a sign of Alzheimer's or another form of dementia? I suffered two blows to the head a year ago - one of which was sliding on the ice and banging the back of my head, with no after effects but the other included a branch hitting me in the face and causing mild concussion. The above incident has been followed by others, including thinking someone I knew in Inverness in The Highlands, knew people I now know in the village where I live, even though he's dead.

Before you jump to the conclusion that you may have dementia, please have other possible causes ruled out first. You should see your doctor and discuss with him/her about your concerns.

I intend doing that as of today.

The question in my head is, is this psychological (i.e. down to depression) or physical (the injuries I mentioned).

It's good that you are getting checked out. Better safe than sorry. Please let us know what you find out okay?

Will do. My point in coming here was to find out if others had experienced this kind of thing. I intended going to the doctors about it anyway. In future I may have questions about my wife's eldest sister and brother, who have been diagnosed with the disease.

The brain is such a complicated "computer". There are so many things that can go wrong that it's hard to determine exactly what is going on at times. Most of the people here are care givers to loved ones suffering from dementia or Alzheimer's. So you may not get a response to your questions. But you are more than welcome to come back anytime to find support for you and your wife.
