Dropping things and being forgetful

Q. If I tend to drop things easily or forget about something, is it the symptoms for the disease? And how to confirm that I have this disease?

Najah, 18, Malaysia

Ask a question

A. Hi Najah,

Thank you for the message. Dropping things and forgetting things could be caused by lots of things, including anxiety. If you are worried about HD then your doctor should be able to check you up.

With best wishes
