Hi bilal.wani,

Issues : 28 year old ,1 year duration, loosing memory,not able to remember the names of friends most of the times,frustrated, Neurologist consulted.

I Need to know
1. family h/o memory loss ?
2. h/o head injury ?
3. h/o seizure ?
4. h/o substance use (eg> Alcohol) ?

If your answer to all these questions are No

Also your Vit B12 level is normal

Then Probably it is Pseudo dementia due to underlying Depression

Do not get panic ! Meet your nearest Psychiatrist discuss about your Life events, stress at various domains in your life. He may prescribe you Antidepressant & advise psychotherapy. Then you will be alright.

Best wishes
