My friend has been experiencing extensive long term memory loss for the past year, and recently it has become so bad he remembers almost no events from his childhood or life up until the past few months. As time passes, the recent memories fade as well. He can remember names, words, and how to do basic tasks, but not events and interactions from his life. Any ideas what this could be? He has no repressed traumatic experiences, nor has he suffered any accidents or head wounds. Also, he is only 20 years old, with no known history of Alzheimers in his family.
