I am concerned I have some form of dementia-specifically Primary Progressive Aphasia. I'm a 37 y/o female. Onset symptoms at age 35 was word finding difficulties and short term memory loss. My MRI at the time symptoms started was normal. Did neuropsych cognitive testing a year ago, and except for a few minor cognitive inefficiencies(low visuospatial) no evidence of neurodegenerative processes. Trouble is, the symptoms are persisting and now issues with misspelling words and occasionally garbling a word are starting. Still having difficulty word finding which is now on a daily basis. Could not remember the word "prosciutto" or "skylight" during some conversations. I felt dumb. I can't remember people's names or faces either.
Could I have been tested too early as my symptoms seemed much more mild a year ago? They only did a few language based tests such as Boston Naming test and the one where you say a bunch of words that start with letter "S"" etc.
