Brief Answer:
Symptoms listed below.

Detailed Answer:
Hello and thanks for using Healthcaremagic.com.

I have read your question and understand your concerns.

The initial symptoms of Alzheimer's are forgetfulness, mild cognitive impairment (difficulty remembering things and organizing your thoughts).

Gradually, multitasking, thinking, and reasoning, deepening of memory issues (get lost in familiar environments for example), changes in behavior and personality (depression, apathy, mood swings, distrust, aggressiveness, wandering, etc.) become prominent symptoms.

Hope you found the answer helpful.

Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care.

I was just at a soccer game, and I am a goalie. I left my gloves at home, so I borrowed someone else s. They told me that they just cleaned them. I put them on and played, but I realized almost immediately that the gloves had a pungent smell of bleach, I was breathing it in during the match. Could that cause any cognitive impairment, or respiratory problems?

I am feeling lethargic with cognitive impairment, tiredness lack of motivation. I feel that I have had an underlying virus or flu since 4.5 months ago. Blood tests check out okay for viruses. Blood test okay. Diagnosed with depression 18mths ago. Now taking 60mg per day of citalopram + 20mg propanolol twice daily. I have felt very well for period of time whilst on this medication but haven't really been 100% since depression diagnosis. Struggling at the moment.
