Brief Answer:
Your symptoms are suggestive of anxiety and benzodiazepine withdrawal.

Detailed Answer:
Thank you for posting your query.

I am Dr Sudhir Kumar, Neurologist, and I would try my best to help you.

I have noted your clinical details. Based on this, your symptoms are suggestive of anxiety. Withdrawal from benzodiazepines also leads to similar symptoms. As a first step, you should start anti-anxiety medicines in consultation with a psychiatrist.

Hashimoto's thyroiditis can also cause an encephalopathy, where the symptoms can be similar to dementia. You can get blood tests done for anti-thyroid antibodies.

Your symptoms are not suggestive of other dementia such as Alzheimer's disease.

I hope my answer helps. Please get back if you have any follow up queries or if you require any additional information.

Wishing you good health,
