If you find yourself exhibiting disturbing symptoms that you
notice yourself, or friends and family gently bring up to you, don't
immediately decide that you, too, have dementia . Other issues that can
make you feel as though you are having dementia symptoms are medication
reactions or interactions, infections and lack of sleep . But you should still see your doctor, and perhaps get a
referral to a specialist who diagnoses dementia daily, since some of the
symptoms are tricky.
