bad memory,bad reading and bad pronunciation

Edited , 5 users are following.

i have multiple problems like bad memory,bad reading and bad pronunciation

i am 23 yo,174 tall and i weight 65 kg

for example sometimes i am scrolling over the pictures and if i like it i press start+print screen,and most of the times when i press it and then look at the picture for 5 more seconds i forget if i pressed print screen or not ,and then i press it again,and it makes me have many duplicats in my colection

sometimes when there is a word "winter" i see it as "water",and when i realise it makes no sense in sentence then i look again and realise that i saw it wrong,also sometimes when i play league of legends when i see vayne with skin i think that it is syndra(who is totaly diferent champion)

and lastly sometimes i am cuting letters in pronunciation,instead of saying "i was" i say "i ws"without midle letter in "was"

does anybody have an idea what disease it could be ?

    I’m assuming you’re taking Citalopram for anxiety?

    Probably one or both of these - Anxiety makes you solely focus on it, leaving little concentration for much else in life, so my guessing is that your mind wanders a little instead of paying attention to the task. Also Citalopram dulls the senses a little so again probably causing you to not be as sharp as normal.

    I doubt there is no disease to be concerned about, but talk to your doctor so he can allay your concerns.

    When I took these meds I couldn't concentrate, could barely read one page of a book and often couldn't follow conversations.

      I forget common words! I forget what Im doing half the time. This all started after starting the meds. My memory has always been very sharp. I hate it. Did it stop when you stopped the meds?

      Yep - I had similar at times. I'd be talking to someone and then completely lose track of where I was going with my words.

      My concentration improved as the meds settled and yes my memory got when I came off meds.

      For me though, at the height of my anxiety condition it was a small price to pay.
