Memory Loss Symptoms

Everyone suffers forgetfulness from time to time. But an occasional inability to remember is not Alzheimer's.

If you have memory loss, it is generally considered to be an abnormal amount of forgetfulness, according to the MedlinePlus website, from the National Institutes of Health. General symptoms of memory loss include forgetting recent events, inability to remember some events that happened in the past, or having issues remembering both new and old events.

The National Institute on Aging website states that some memory issues associated with aging include forgetting some information, misplacing objects and taking longer to learn new information.

For many people, memory loss is associated with aging and the well-known brain disease known as Alzheimer’s disease. However, one article on MyHealthBridge.com, a senior care blog, suggests that some forms of memory loss are a normal part of the aging process and shouldn’t be blown out of proportion.

I am experiencing few seconds of memory loss and wanted to get info. This happened to me several years ago while I was driving. Did not know where I was who I was , where I was going etc. It took few seconds to regain my memory.
It also happened last week, while I was at art class. Just for a second, lost all memory , same feeling for not remembering anything. then gradually I got my memory back . Very strange feeling when this happen , very scary too.
I am 51, 6 ft. 185 lb, Healthy in general little high cholesterol 230 High SPK level 300 - 900(was told Muscular dystrophy) But I do not believe that because I am muscular and still play soccer. Also very low white count 2.1 - 2.5. This is going on for the past 25 years or so. and yes, tested every thing you can think of. No disease to report. I drink but not too much, and I was not drinking when this happened. I do not do drugs. I am not on any medication except for Acid reflux.
Any idea what that is. I hope I do not have to go through lots of tests again. I did so many tests (I could say ALL) for the blood SPK and white counts and hope not to go through that again.
