    Early onset Alzheimer's: memory Test

    Briefly, I've been disabled for 20 odd years and taking a lot of medication daily ( mainly painkillers)
    At the moment complications mean I cannot eat meals or produce enough iron but, prior to this latest problem I have been having memory problems. I'm 57 and my doctor suggested I go for the 'memory test'.
    Has anyony undertaken one of these tests and possibly tell me what to expect.
    Of course I appreciate that you may not remember
    Thanks

    Hi Tinker

    I have not had this test, but I am hoping to get some tests of some sort via my GP. My memory has been getting steadily worse and I am now starting to forget words or put the wrong words in sentences.
    I am finding this worrying and extremely frustrating.

    I turned 50 earlier this year so I am not sure how helpful my GP would be.
    What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.
