Memory loss lack of oxygen

Common Questions and Answers about Memory loss lack of oxygen


Avatar f tn You would have to ask her Doctor that one, is she on meds as I do know that some have an effect on short term memory, what is she taking, ask her Doctor if the meds could be the reason, maybe her dosage,has she been upset maybe suffering from anxiety?
Avatar m tn The elderly can't take much - lack of oxygen to the brain is not good. Find out what the doctor ordered for amount of oxygen before he was found. Did he have health care helper come in to help him at home or was it only his wife. See about an artopsy/sp. Bring up to the police after you get the answers and see what they think. Did he have a life ins. and did they have nursing home ins. Nursing home will take half or more of all the money and assets with out nursing home ins..
Avatar m tn The first part (ischemic folic) indicates some generalized neuronal damage from lack of oxygen stemming probably from blood flow constriction. Perhaps your tablet for life is a blood thinner. You should have this explored further to my opinion and find the cause, if possible. The second observation from the precentral gyrus, seems irrelevant, as this is the main motor center of the brain which initiates movement by contraction of the muscles.
Avatar n tn In 2007 he had a hip replacement done and ended up having 3 operations within one week because of complications. My question is could the buildup of medications etc cause him to now have memory loss, language skills loss and tremors in his right hand. He walked in to the hospital on crutches and now is dependent on a wheelchair.
Avatar m tn i was told the brain cells die if a lack of oxygen,but recently told this will inprove? does my lack of memory/oxygen to the brain meen i need to request an appointment with a specialist or is it due to ?autism 1)dilated cardiomyopathy - enlarged and weakened heart, damaged left ventricle.
Avatar f tn Hi Welcome to the MedHelp forum! Well, it may or may not have. Loss of oxygen to brain may not have been there with the baby turning blue. It could be just decreased blood supply. This may cause memory problems later on. In case there are infarcts, then these may cause symptoms. In case there are symptoms, a MRI of brain or EEG should be done. If there are no symptoms then you should not worry. Hope this helps. Take care!
Avatar f tn Following a heart attack back in October 2007, I am not at much of a loss of memory. however at times I could feel how sharper my memory was before the onset of the ailment. I would forget for a moment even names of closely known people.The event is however brief and i would soon gain my memory back.I would attribute possible reasons for this to the score o medicines taken.
Avatar n tn Briefly, I remembered the characters that were close to me but where were they, that i could not recall. It took me a couple of hours to bring back my memory. The next day i went to the local hospital and they admitted me and made some tests on me. Blood test, CT Scanning and Spinal cord fluid test. They initially thought it was a minor brain hammerage. After the results, they concluded that it was not a brain hammerage but some kind of STRESS stroke.
Avatar m tn One of the rare side effects of Citalopram is difficulty with concentrating, some less common side effects are blurred vision, confusion, loss of memory and headaches. I remember you saying you have been taking Citalopram for about 3 months. That's a fairly long time to be exposed to the drug and consequently the side effects of the drug. Well, I guess that is all for now.
Avatar n tn ANOXIC BRAIN INJURY (DUE TO LACK OF OXYGEN) My father had a heart failure on April 6th. He lost oxygen for 12 to 15 minutes in his brain. Now he is in coma. He was admiited to ICU on 6th. He has not come out of coma. Neurologist are not very hopeful of his recovery. They say his brain is damaged due to lack of oxygen. His diagnosis is anoxic brain injury. He has some reflexes his brain stem is OK, His heart rate, blood pressure and breathing is stabilized. He does not respond.
Avatar f tn I don't think that an anti-depressant, especially one that you have been taking for the past 8 years, would suddenly cause this type of memory loss. I only had such bad memory problems the first week after having a major stroke and was diagnosed with aphasia. I am 60 years old and my friends talk about not being able to find a word that they want to say, but nothing like the memory loss that you are talking about. So take some of the suggestions offered above to help with it financially.
Avatar f tn Could the scarring get worse. Can it be the cause of my long term memory loss. I barely recognize my children in pictures, some I don't.
Avatar f tn Several family members of mine have had blockages in the arteries/veins in their neck as well as in other main arteries and my symptoms sound similar to what my grandma experienced when they found abnormalities in her jugular veins and it also sounds to me like my symptoms seem like theres a lack of oxygen to the brain? I was wondering what this sounds like to you? Any advice on how to get a referal to have this thoroughly checked?
Avatar n tn We can't speak to the possibility of Alzheimer's disease. Your mom’s doctors would have to make that evaluation. Heart failure, unless accompanied by increased fluid in the lungs, called pulmonary edema, is ordinarily not a cause of low oxygen levels, especially to the degree of 69%. Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a much more likely cause, especially given your mom’s history of heavy smoking.
Avatar n tn I think possibly it could be a lack of concentration, maybe you are doing something else and not focused on what they are saying, so try focusing on the person when they talk to you, are you on any meds as they can make you have some short term memory loss. Are you anxious about anything as anxiety can also be a cause .
Avatar f tn The Doctor told me that since the lack of oxygen I damage my muscles each night. She looked into this because there was no other reason I should be in pain.....I have been scanned, tested, poked, and shocked...LOL It is not vitamin deficiency, muscles, nerves, brain.... I called about the sleep study ~like my doctor told me to~when we returned from vacation and the nurse said she couldn't find the orders. She has the oxygen orders.
Avatar m tn HI NOT TO WORRY YOU OR ANYTHING, but your sleepiness is a sign of lack of energy and oxygen, shortness of breath is deffinatley to do with your heart disease and lungs, as you have heart disease you heart has to work faster than normal which will make you more out of breathe! have you been checked out for copd? have you had time in hospital treatment and had your blood gases done at all?
Avatar f tn i also have extremely bad memory i forgot some symptoms i wanted to mention to, thats one of the reasons i do badly in school sometimes but also the lack of concentration would do that, but my memory problem is starting to scare because it gets so bad that i cant remember things that happened the day before either. Whats wrong with me if there is can i treat it with meds or something?
1530176 tn?1291947565 I just constantly feel like I've had an undiagnosed stroke or heamorraghe or I've got ms and no one is listening or concerned, terrified I'm dying! I feel like I have a lack of oxygen going to my brain, my heart races then slows down so much it scares me. Does this sound like anxiety to anyone or am I really I'll?
Avatar m tn Your cardio-vascular system is affected because of low red cells depriving you of oxygen ect.ect. Some people do maintain exercise routines but many just have to accept that they are debiltated and go with the flow.
Avatar n tn Kathy shares with me more than anyone about her memory problems. Her memory loss has been the source of most of her depression. She says it's like she lost pieces of her life. And when she asks for help clarifying some things, some people close to her have not been able to understand. Because she is on top of everything else mentally, it's hard for some to believe she can't remember certain things.
Avatar n tn ve also learned that if you can manage your sugars and keep them under control a lot of that memory loss and lack of brain function comes back. I recommend just searching around on the internet and reading different things. Obviously not all things that you come across are going to be true but it may be helpful. I hope that I've helped you in some way or another.
Avatar n tn 24/7 and is having constant memory loss and hearing loss...he already wears a hearing aid in each ear. does the lack of O2 agrevate his condition This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/283544'>oxygen and weak breathing</a>.
Avatar n tn if a person that has a tracodomy is not given the correct amount of oxygen at different times, can it cause that person to be confused as to what is going on around them or change their moods, or have short term memory loss. This person also has been in the hospital for several months and has sudamonas.
Avatar n tn Or I have lung issues /infections etc. I had my oxygen level tested twice after my brain MRI showed lack of oxygen causing problems where I had a stroke at 17 but did not know it,only knew I had some kind of damage. I did not find out until 2002 that I had lesions on my optic nerves / some on each side of my brain and the old Lacunar Infarct in the lower right side of my brain. In 2000 I had some kind of attack that sent me spinning..
Avatar n tn i've been doing online research and there is a direct relation with mercury and brain fog, memory loss, loss of concentration, depression, and the other symptoms i've had. so i'm going the next step to inquire about heavy metal detoxification. maybe some of you should look into the heavy metal test as well.
604197 tn?1292308636 I was 43 when my accident occurred. I will probably not ever be the same again. I suffer from dizziness and loss of balance, loss of coordination and a tremor in my right hand whenever I try to write, eat or do anything that involves fine motor skills. But I still see small improvements after 4 yrs. so don't ever give up. Its a long road to recovery and I'm much better off than I was at first.
Avatar n tn The big problem is lack of amniotic fluid and regardless of how far along I make it her lungs may still not develop. I have had anywhere from 0-4 cms of fluid (0cm being the most recent) which is not good but we still hope and pray for a miracle. We have already beaten great odds by making it this far and I'm glad my hospital did not induce. Wait until you show signs of infection before making that decision.
Avatar f tn The doctors said that he had lack of oxygen to his brain that was making him hear stuff and see stuff that wasn't there. The doctor said he was getting brain dead and it was no reverseable that there was nothing he could do??????????????Of course I fought with him on the issue and he wanted to order a dnr. I was devastated..............................How long is this grieving process going to last I feel like a zombie. Should I take down the picture would ithelp me? I have no clue.
1896835 tn?1321576203 Should society which is us, the American people, who live in the wealthiest country in the world let a fellow American suffer and die because of a lack of money? How many of us could afford to pay hundreds of thousands of dollars if we too needed a liver transplant in order to continue living? Surely America can do better. If after all I have been though and seen first hand had not motivated me to help fellow suffers I would have to be one uncaring selfish human being.
