Confusion can also be caused by your health condition or some medicines. Confusion may begin suddenly or come and go during the day. 

Possible signs of confusion include:

  • Sudden changes in feelings (such as feeling calm then suddenly becoming angry).
  • Having trouble paying attention or concentrating (such as feeling easily distracted, having trouble answering questions, or finding it harder to do tasks that involve logic, such as math problems).
  • Memory and awareness problems (such as forgetting where you are and what day it is or forgetting recent events).

If you notice these signs, talk to your health care team to try to find out the cause.

Meanwhile, try one or more of the following to help relieve confusion:

  • Go to a quiet, well-lit room with familiar objects.
  • Reduce noise.
  • Have family or loved ones nearby.
  • Put a clock or calendar where it can be seen.
  • Limit changes in caregivers.
  • Ask your health care team about drugs that may help.
