Can I Have Early Onset Alzhemier`s
I’m 38 years old and am having trouble remembering. I also have speech problems and my words don’t come out right. I have been having joint pain, tiredness, and headaches.
There are many causes of memory issues. At your age, Alzheimer's is very unlikely. However, these symptoms may be a part of a serious condition and I would recommend for you to visit a doctor right away.
