A 50-year-old healthy Japanese woman experienced acute-onset memory loss and difficulty remembering certain past events while working.

Physical and neurologic examination findings, electrolyte and glucose levels, electroencephalographic examination findings, and toxicology test results were normal.

What have I learned, even while kicking, screaming and denying, through the entire testing and education process? That it is a real thing, that I really do have it, and that I fee...
