Does this descibe what you are feeling?

Dysphasia, Nominal
A language dysfunction characterized by the inability to name people and objects that are correctly perceived. The individual is able to describe the object in question, but cannot provide the name. This condition is associated with lesions of the dominant hemisphere involving the language areas, in particular the TEMPORAL LOBE. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p484)

If it happening a lot you might want to get an MRI done.


CN say, never do any test unless you know what you want to do with the results and this is a classic example. Trust me, whatever the medical profession is going to do with the results you don't want to go there. MRIs are assumed to be benign tests - yet another screwed up assumption. At the end of all the stupid tests you will be told it has an unknown etiology that is idiopathic. Translation, they don't have a fkcn clue what caused it or how to fix it.

On a more serious note, the brain is like a muscle and the more you work it the better it stays. There are many articles like on this which you can google. Here is a start.

Sorry cn, I gotta disagree & point out that my Mom, that passed away Thanksgiving time, was more mentally active then most 3 people i know. She still went into dementia 3 yrs ago & alzheimers was not far behind--of course she was 99. I'm sure mental activity helps, but I believe it's still the toss of the dice ;)

Kind of like stopping to think and forgetting to start up again. I forget words and names all the time. It only really bothers me when I meet with a potential client andI can't finish my sentence. Very frustration and embarrassing!!

. $hit she held it together until she was 96 and you offer this as proof of what? Of course, genetics is a factor as is lifestyle. Let me promise you one thing... I will never make 96 and the way the world is going don't feel sorry for me.

See Sgt Bilko (Steve Martin) and remember this line from the film:

Do you know anything about cars (building - whatever), sir? - No. Ah. Well, you see that sort of pointy thing right there? It seems that it's impinging on the browned, round thing with the spots. First of all though make sure they voted for Obama, then you have a sure thing.

Yes using your briain, thinking as in solving, analytical ways, is good for it. like exercise for your muscuallar being. i had a stroke 5 years ago, not bad, no permanent muscular motor functions lost. Yet, mentally the fine point on the tack is dull. The loss of memory retention at times, breaks in thought process at times, words not naturally falling in place in talking from thought can be a challenge, and get tired a lot easier than before. Other times, alls good, nothing wrong at all. Mind says i'm still in twentys, but body and residuals of stoke remind me thats not true.

I guess that's true all the way up through the ages. I always feel like I am 18 till I get up to move. And as Curly would say "UUUgh Hey Moe, I am trying to think and nothing happens " :D

Some letters have worn off my keyboard. E - R and T is the trouble spot becsue they are right together. If I'm just typing and letting my fingers do their thing I have no trouble finding these letters but when I actually try and look for the key...... Hmmmmmmm. And that makes it worse becsue now I'm thinking about it and not letting my fingers do their thing. :lol:

It can be embarrassing too. Years ago I'm having this conversation with the neighbor and I point to this object on the ground and I went just blank, for the life of me I couldn't remember the name curb.


Ive got it :idea: the perfect solution! .... Dcrane for admin :P :lol: JK JK
I have the same exact issue as you, my key letters sdcert are totally gone (what keys did you wipe out?)
