I don't like coming back here, but I thought post anyway just to clarify some issues I've been having.
For the past 2 weeks I think I have been having what I think might be senior moments (mild cognitive decline), where I would seemingly forget something and then recall it. This has been most prominent when it comes to my new glasses. What would happen is that I would leave my room without them before suddenly realising that I forgot about them and go back to get them.
Another incident involved me having my sister's toy boat in my pocket, but not knowing the reason for it being there (I know that we were playing with it and that I put it in there when she went outside to play with her friends, but there is a lapse in terms of "why" the boat was there).
Finally, today I went shopping to get some drinks for home. I got the usual drinks along with juice. Usually I get summer fruits flavour and I told myself to get it, but for some reason I ended up getting Blackcurrent.
I'm planning on going back to the doctor for another checkup because I don't like uncertainty and CJD has been on my mind for a while, especially since I have been having some muscle twitches, but I'm not sure if they are myoclonus or not. Sometimes I would get a myoclonic jerk where my leg would move slightly on its own and relax, but that's about it, though I have also had muscle spasms in the wrist of my left hand and the elbow of my right hand. The arm wouldn't move outright, but the muscle would contract and when looking at it, it seemed almost like something was poking out of the skin and going back into it very rapidly. The left arm twitch was enough to move my thumb slightly.
Example of arm twitch on left arm:
