Am I getting Alzheimer's?

HENRICO, VA (WWBT) -

Alzheimer's is a disease that can impact anyone and as we get older, it always seems to be a lingering threat.

Dr. William Ferrar has some tips to look out for.

Patients are worried about the normal loss of the speed of recall of their memory. The peak speed of recall is between 25 - 35 years old, with a slow decline.

This is normal aging without an increase of dementia.

Even night time leg cramps that increase at night after age 50 is also a similar sign of normal aging.
