I have been experiencing problems with confusion and memory loss for several years now. It seems to come and go. I have mentioned this to several doctors and they each say that it is due to stress. It scares me that no one has bothered to ensure that this is really happening to me due to too much stress in my life. Just today, one block from my house, I could not remember which way to turn to run my daily routine. This is a road I have been down at least 100 times. A sense of confusion came over me and it was like there was just no memory of ever being in the area before. It is actually quite frightening every time this happens. Should I trust my doctors and consider this a side effect of stress?
