In the past month or so, I have been mixing up my words with words close to what I really mean. Like put that in the freezer when I meant refrigerator. or What is the dog doing when I am talking about the cat. As soon as I say something wrong, I know I have done it. Is this an early sign of alzheimer's or some other mental disorder. I am almost 48 and a female. It's starting to freak me out!

hi, it does not have to be either alzheimer's or a mental disorder. sounds more like a neurological problem
good luck

suziepoo; while I don't know u; u would know if this is normal, WHAT we all do, or not and especially if pointed out repeatedly by those closest like spouse and family

if u have insurance, then ask dr. but be specific
there r some tests they can do at dr office to help determine if u should need other interpretation

does Alzheimer run in your family
do neurological problems run in family
r parents both alive and what of their health

so if u r over conscientious about this then u will recognize that SO IF IT IS REALLY freaking u out then it is telling u something

best 2u
