Is There Anything To Be Done About Memory Loss? It's Scarring Me

Is There Anything To Be Done About Memory Loss? It's Scarring Me

I went to the doc this weak complaining of severe memory loss, as well as pain I'm my shoulders neck and head. When I forget something I have zero recall. My doc gave me a very basic memory test and said I was fine. I'm very frustrated as I know I'm not

I got that way. I was in such extreme pain. I could not recall name.i could recall what happen 2 hrs ago much LESS a6 month or even 3 month. I know I had alhemiers OR a brain tumor. And at the present things are not much better but these auto immune disease they affect everything. Doctors especially PCP KNOW KNOW anything. They want even offer a Blood tests for the disease. They say its a man's disease WRONG.they say a Blood work is NOT accurate. Which it doesn't show up SOMETIMES. But cthats weak evidence. It may not show up at that time but blood work can change every often. But insist on x-ray. Whet ever is hurting you and then a CT and a MRI is better. But I cannot do an MRI. AND if there is a dough. You need to get a Rhematologist. That's the first thing they should do a good Rhemutologist can be in the room and tell you if it is AS. And if your PCP will not send you. You need to get another PCP.they cannot doctor auto immune disorders. And if you are in extreme pain which I know you are. Get a pain specialist.GOOD LUCK, It is so hard to have a doctor that just don't care. Please keep us up dated. Hope you get help soon.โ™ฅ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™

I also have memory problems. I went to a new neurologist and had a brain scan. He said do looks fine. I think it has to do with all the medication I take.

Susan. Happy your not having another surgery. I think most doctoring is like a scam. Most all of them donโ€™t care. I have real bad memory problems. I went to a new neurologist and his test questions were ridiculous. Like what day is it ? Whoโ€™s the president, etc. this is a dr!! Give me a break. Did an mri of brain and said it was normal. Last time I saw him. No compassion. Sold me some cream for $50. For pain. Bio freeze was better. Like you I wonder why Iโ€™m still on this earth. I have too much pain to volunteer for a good cause. I feel like I contribute nothing to society. The virus made everyone stay home. Thatโ€™s what I do anyway. No fun. Just venting. Thanks to anyone that reads this. Hope your pain level is 6. Thatโ€™s another scam. What number is your pain. I better stop. Iโ€™m laughing at myself. I must sound crazy. Who cares. Hugs from Meredith

My daughter's laugh at me. But I get back at them. I tell them that I gave segments and I want a test. They said it was the AS and EVERYTHING else. I said, whats the use of taking THE biologics.It doesn't help with the pain, stiffness and I have been having terrible headache so I quit taking my biologics about a year ago. I am on the strongest pain killer you can take.and I am in so much pain some days. I ask GOD to take me home. But I have been praying that prayer for 10 years.he just want do it. I am trying to find the reason he keeps me here.no ANSWERS yet. But now they want to do surgery and they cannot guarantee that it will help. Probably will make things worse.So I told them to go find another sucker. Because I am done having surgeries.
