In brief: Need a lot more info

To even start to give you an answer, i would need to know a lot more about you: your age, medical conditions, why you think you might be getting alzheimer's.
And that's just to start. To actually make the diagnosis requires a thorough work-up including, at least, a good history, a brain scan, comprehensive psychometric testing, lab work, and a physical exam. And there's even more possibly.

I agree. A diagnosis is made by excluding all other causes such as thyroid disorders, vitamin deficiencies and depression. Age is a key factor.
