Memory loss blackouts

Common Questions and Answers about Memory loss blackouts

memory

You say you are on a number of meds. Check the side effects for each drug you take. Some can cause people to pass out or fall asleep at the wheel. Whichever meds are like that, talk to your prescribing physician and have him switch you to something different on those. By the way, that new Lyrica, I take it and it helps me a lot. However, I cannot drive for a couple hours after I take it, although it does NOT have the side effect of fainting, only dizziness.
) Do you fall to the ground? Do you just have loss of memory? Are their any warning signs? How do you feel after the episode? Do you have sudden loss of tone in your legs and you just collapse without losing consciousness (commonly called a Drop Attack.) I ask because I had 3 drop attacks in 3 days and on the 4th day, as I was leaning over a little to the left and lifted my head up to look at my spine surgeon (I work in an OR) I had memory loss for about 10-15 sec.
With this disorder, the degree of memory loss goes beyond normal forgetfulness and includes gaps in memory for long periods of time or of memories involving the traumatic event. Dissociative amnesia is not the same as simple amnesia, which involves a loss of information from the memory, usually as the result of disease or injury to the brain. With dissociative amnesia, the memories still exist but are deeply buried within the person’s mind and cannot be recalled.
I had welps and scratches on my back that were very deep. If I have been having memory loss and some blackouts, I obviously would recognize it at the time. After talking to friends and famly members, I began to question myself. Had I done this to myself during a black-out and not realized it? An instance like this has happened to me before. I was atacked in my backyard by a burglar and beat up.he ran off, but came back a while later and attempted to rape me , hurting me in the process.
Sorry Hi, My question really is about memory loss. I am only 24 years and I feel like I am too young to be experiencing this kind of memory loss; I don't know what you want to call it but I just think maybe it's getting worse? I always had a little hard time remembering things but recently I think it has reached a level now where it is impacting me and my surrondings. Less than a week ago, I lost my iphone, (or so I thought) when going at the post office.
Since then I have suffered memory loss on 3 occassions. I call them blackouts, because I didnt remeber anything for about 4 days in a row each time. In fact, according to my sister I carried on as if I was feeling fine. Even driving. She said I was as if I had been drinking(wasnt drinking) On two of those occasions I have woken up in ER. The 1st time I went the dr stated that I had taken 15 xanax and I had taken quite a bit of either tylenol or Ibuprofen.
I am so frighted that I won't be able to stop drinking and am drinking a heck of a lot. I am concerned about all the blackouts and memory loss especially as they are occuring at various times. This is not normal surely? Please comfort me.
i seem to find that last 2 or 3 months i have been gradually getting easier to lose my temper but when i do i have no memory of what happened, i become extremely violent last week especially i beat a man so bad his face was not recognisable scary thing is mates said i said he wasn't breathing and i just dumped his body over a wall and went on as if nothing had happened just thank the lord he is still alive but i really don't know what happened and want to get a guess as to what could be wrong w
No one knows what causes these blackouts, time loss, short term memory loss or headaches. There really is no rhyme or reason.Please help give me some direction to take. The problem is there and the medications may really not be helping. I know stress and anxiety can cause a lot of physical problems but this is absolutely crazy.
1. Metroprolol can give you short-term memory loss AND make your extremities cold (you had mentioned your hands getting cold, so that probably explains that!!) 2. Alprazolam can give you memory impairment and, more rarely, transient amnesia I currently take a tranquilizer, a pain killer, a nerve pain medicine, as well as an SSRI.
I'm nauseas everyday, usually dizzy as well, I get spacey at times, my memory is horrible, I get blackouts, and heart palpitations (I'm wearing a monitor for 3 weeks). Because of my busy schedule, I rarely have time to eat, I usually just grab something on the go. And when I do get the chance to eat a nice meal, I can only eat a little bit because I get full so fast, and I start to feel even more nauseas afterwards. I'm tired all the time - one week I was getting less than 5 hours/sleep/night.
00 Remember cider is stronger than beer and more acidic. What I am wondering about is why the memory loss is only afterwards?
I expressed concerns over an issue, I started having blackouts, accompanied by very short term memory loss and tooth numbness (all pretty rapidly onset, all following an aura where I see stars, and preceding vomiting fits.) My doctor had sonograms done because I had extrem pain above and to the right of my belly button, that spread to near where my gallbladder was. They found sludge, but the walls were not thickened..
I have had a variety of problems including persistent memory loss, loss of concentration, headaches/migraines etc but something that i have started to notice more recently is these blackouts i get. I can get them at any time and anywhere, including when I'm driving the car. The reason I am asking for help is that last sunday i had a particulalry bad episode.
My coach said it was probably because I didn't have enough to drink/electrolytes, and I sat out the rest of the period. Also, I used to have nearly a photographic memory. Anything that I read was completely committed to memory, as well as anything anyone ever said. Nowadays, I can not remember recent events very well. It's difficult for me to find words and sometimes I replace words with ones that rhyme or in a similar category. (like dishwasher with garbage disposer).
My friend has been having daily headaches, nosebleeds, and also frequent memory loss. She often forgets encounters or conversation and even seems to maybe having blackouts where she cant remember things shes done throughout her day. I have known her for 2.5 years and not once has she had the memory loss and headaches symptoms as often as she has had for the past couple of months and her nosebleeds have started about 2 weeks ago. and she doent take any meds or hasnt even seen a doc.

I've also been having memory loss. I looked up some symptoms and found that I have 30 out of 35 symptoms of Huntington's Disease. I have no family history, so the chance of the gene mutating on its own is low. Also, I'm a teenager, which makes the disease even more unlikely. The chances of me having this disease is one in a million, but its the only one I can find that fits.
Help your friend as much as you can since I think loss of memory always breeds painful situations.
My daughter is 20 and is experiencing headaches, blurriness then loss of vision and blackouts, occasionally she has vomitting prior. I have a her to the emergency room three times and they find nothing. This time (which was just tonight) they referred her to a neurologist and cardiologist. Her hair is also falling out when she washes or brushes it, not just a little but big handfuls. She had seizures as a child and I am wondering if she is not having them now.

I have been fine for over a year with no episodes and now out of the blue I have another. It just so happens that it is after he tells me he is going to quit his job. My memory is not that bad because I can go back in time far enough to know that a lot of my problems and symptoms happen around the time of a major crisis. It is either because of bad choices or something you can't control. I worry... they say that is part of my problem.?
Ok so I went to my regular doctor today bc I've started having problems walking, talking & memory. 2 mths ago this put me on 7 different meds & I had a bad reaction. Today she denied even giving me them & cancelled the 2 I am still taking. So long story short she refused to.do anything for me no test or anything. She informed me she thinks I have syringomyelia & its progressed.
Nothing helped - antibiotics only worked temporarily. In my own personal experience the neuro side included short term memory loss, inability to complete any math or number sequence,,seizure type blackouts ( only lasting 5-30 sec.- thought by neurologist to be temporal lobe seizures), tremors in my neck and hands, strange buzzing noises in back of head and migraine headaches. Wow reading that in words makes me wonder how I survived the last year!
