I have the same issues, but am alot older..lol Medications can cause a lot of problems with your brain etc... even when off of them it takes a while for your brain to fully heal from all the chemicals that u have put in it, my advice to u would be as soon as u get ins. make an appointment with a neurologist just to be on the safe side to make sure there is nothing more serious going on... good luck and keep us posted...
Hello. Was reading with interest about your situation. Something that can help is to have a very good diet that includes plenty of B12 and protein. If you happen to be vegetarian, the B12 is extremely important as veggies don't have that needed vitamin and must be a supplement. Lack of this vitamin does cause brain dysfunction.
If diet isn't big on veggies, you ought to be taking a multiple vitamin, and of course, your daily calcium with D3 (it also has magnesium in it). Sometimes adding supplements can make a real difference. However, do check with your doctor for anything that you are gong to take. You can check drug interactions in the lookup bar above.
So sorry you have all these physical problems. You found a good site to talk with people and share.
You ought to check with a therapist to see if something else is going on for you causing the memory problems. You are certainly overloaded and anxiety or depression can cause this. There are many other possibilities for short term memory problems. This includes sleeping meds and drug interactions, as well as physical problems. I suggest you see someone very soon about this.
Finally, when were your last complete blood panels? CBC, Comp, etc.? There may be clues there when compared to past panels. And just add your current meds to your original questions as your comment, right under your question. That may help others recognizes something. Hang in there as the more one knows the better a chance to discover what is happening. :-)
