6. Personality change
When people think of specific symptoms of the initial stages of Alzheimer’s disease, the idea of memory came in their mind first. Still, the changes in personality or mood are another crucial warning sign. The man begins to lose interest in his favorite hobbies.
The person who was responsible and very caring will suddenly start ignoring everyone and becomes a moody and bad-tempered man. A lady who used to have a courteous language and speak very kind words could begin to use hostile language. A mentally healthy person suddenly started to get depressed and worried all the time.
Remember that, in order to take this as an accurate symptom of the initial stages of Alzheimer’s disease, the person must have other symptoms such as memory loss or time distortion.
7. Speech impairment
During Alzheimer’s disease, patients may suffer from various speech disorders. They generally have issues with their vocabulary or are not able to communicate well. Most of the time, patients use the same sound words or filler words for communication, because they forget what the words mean or what they say.
Repeating specific sentences becomes difficult for them because they lack the required understanding of the language. They frequently interrupt the discussion by long breaks because they have to think a lot about what they need to say. These symptoms make it difficult to understand the person asking the question, so many patients keep themselves away from the discussion.
