2. Anxiety and Agitation
Those who have started developing Alzheimer’s may be seen constantly moving around, pacing, getting angry very easily, and obsessed with certain minor details. This last obsession would make them very sensitive to the smallest kind of change. They could get paranoid and even accusatory when they find or perceive some shift.
This sort of agitation and anxiety is probably linked to fear, tiredness, and the burden of dealing with the confusion these patients go through. They’re simply not feeling like their old self—no wonder it’s taking a toll on their mental well-being!
Early-onset dementia and Alzheimer’s in middle-aged folks are becoming frighteningly more common. So if you’re constantly feeling anxious, agitated, or frustrated without a solid reason, you may have some cause to worry. Be sure to check your family history for any signs of Alzheimer’s and try to get a proper diagnosis as soon as possible.
