Losing my mind at 30

I have been noticing these weird things happening to me. I will forget things that happen and say the wrong things. I've been saying the wrong words like 21 when I mean 15 or Apple when I mean Orange or something like that. I will call somebody by the wrong name who I've known for years. I also accidentally told the customer that I loved them instead of saying I love their hair. I talked my parents and my friends about this and they tell me not to worry and I'm just making a mountain out of a molehill but I think something is really wrong. I do not have a family doctor, I have no one to go to talk to about this. I've gone to the ER and they said that there's nothing immediately wrong with me but I think there is, and I really would like some advice where should I go?

could be better but for now suggest you find the best walk-in clinic in your area and when you see the Dr., be proactive for yourself and insist on them giving you a referral to a neurologist who specializes in cognitive issues.

I have similar issues. I’ve seen my family doctor for unrelated issues many times and never thought to mention it to them and blamed it all on being tired and stressed out , but your post makes me wonder if this is not something else. I’ll need to have this checked.

Walk-in clinic. In my non-medical opinion, you should be assessed by a neurologist. My experience with emerg has been that they will rule out common things that will kill you quickly, and if they don't find those things, they'll send you home without finding an explanation.
