Posted on Wed, 19 Oct 2016
Question: Woke up this morning and realized my memory about very well-known facts was gone. A friend asked me to meet him at Waffle House where we have met often and I had to do a web search to determine where it is. Other similar memory losses evident during the day.. Symptoms have mostly disappeared now at 9 pm.

None of the other symptoms you mentioned are present now or previously, but the memory issues were perhaps more severe and widespread than my initial note described, and quite unsettling. Is time a critical issue if the symptoms don't return, or or is it safe to wait a couple of weeks when I already have a routine physical exam scheduled?
