Memory test long term care insurance

Common Questions and Answers about Memory test long term care insurance


Avatar n tn Dear one, so good to hear from you! You know, I'm not sure what you're taking these days, but I've read that the benzos, be they Xanax or Ativan or Valium, etc. can cause temporary amnesia -- it clears up when you "clean up" much like pot's effect on short term memory. I also was on Prozac for a few months afer my back surgery in 1993, and it made me an absolute space case.
Avatar n tn Post-Concussion Syndrome After Mild Brain Injury Patients with long-term symptoms were more likely to have radicular symptoms, anxiety, sleep disturbance, blurred vision, "symptoms of cranial nerve or brainstem dysfunction," and signs of osteoarthrosis of the spine. These patients were also more likely to report more pain immediately after the accident.
Avatar n tn My concern is with long term use and side effects of Neurontin (mid-forties male, 170 lbs). Can you please enlighten me regarding this question? Thank you in advance.
Avatar f tn Has anyone experienced long-term issue with elevated EBV numbers going up and down, but aways elevated numbers? Which, I think, is termed "chronic/active infection." If so, how long did it last? Or, is lasting...
Avatar m tn Anxiety festers to a life-threatening level, and my short-term memory is now shot, but my long-term memory has actually increased sixfold over the years. My heart pounds often, but I am actually able to run mile after mile and I lift weights. I just recovered from a relapse...but every single time I binge for weeks and weeks at a time taking 16-32 at a time, about 1-3 times a day. I feel as if my mind is no longer the way a human mind should be.
Avatar n tn i want to know whether to take interferon or not my pcr 600000 normal liver enzymes liver biopsy 4/6 plz tell me take it or not.
Avatar n tn Although I don't experience the same long term sx as your wife I have little good to say about my post tx sx. I tx'd in 2000 with Inf/Riba combo and can truly say I felt better pre tx. That said, sometimes these questions don't seem to get as many replies as others because, I feel, some folks consider questions concerning long term sx as taboo. I don't know of any tx or groups dedicated to this subject but others in the group may be more helpful.
Avatar n tn I was wondering if it was a possibility that it could be another long term adverse effect of the Adderall? They have become very nervous and fidgety, neither were before taking this medication. My step-son has the most severe sypmtoms.
Avatar n tn My GP is aware of this, and we are gradually coming of it. But will there be any long term damage to my internal organs? I have never been above 120mg a day. Has this already caused me problems, or is it unlikely? I must say, I originally took this for migraine. . not effective for that now, but still have to take it. All done through my GP and have never experimented with any drugs even tobacco!
Avatar f tn I have a hard time comprehending things when I read and I don't know if that has anything to do with my memory. I am a senior at a University, but I only remember my notes short term enough to take a test then I forget it all. I want to be able to recall memories of my childhood. I sit and think hard, but nothing comes to my mind. My thoughts are always jumbled up. Everyone knows I don't have a good memory, but only my mom and I know to what degree.
Avatar n tn Hi Amber I hope my experience can help you a little. I am 60 years old, live in California. My mother was 87 when she had her stroke, she is now 90 and will be 91 in March. It was a very serious clot, the Dr. said it affected about 70 % of her brain. She is left right side paralyzed and has aphasia (she cannot speak, read or write). Her cognative skills are minimal, she cannot even tell yes from no. Prior to this she was independent, living in her own home in San Francisco.
Avatar f tn Has anyone else experienced these delayed, long-term withdrawal effects from Effexor? If so, did they ever go away? I'm scheduled for an MRI of my brain to rule out anything more serious such as ALS. If my tests come back o.k., the doctor mentioned putting me back on Effexor and then weaning me off of it very slowly to see if that gets rid of everything, but I'm afraid to go back on it in case it just makes everything worse.
Avatar m tn Hi all and Happy 4th if you can. I am responding to "post tx sides for the long term". I started tx 13 weeks back with type 3a and had little symptoms from hep c but showed elevated alt and ast but not very high, general health pretty darn good. Dr said no bx necessary as I decided to treat anyway. After 4 weeks UND and ast/alt normal range. I will visit the Dr Thursday to get results from 12 weeks PCR. I believe it will be UND.
Avatar n tn Bravo, Dave. :) The long-term side-effects of treatment (as well as the side-effects of long term treatment) are thoughts that run around in my head a lot, sure. I've watched my husband endure 128 weeks of interferon, and though it's obvious to both of us he's not the same physically, we can only figure things from an *anecdotal* standpoint -- how objective can we be without a *control* situation, after all?
Avatar m tn But the RLS is driving me insane. HOW can I stop this? And when will I start to feel better. Can long term sub users who have gone through withdrawal please help me? I was always told the withdrawal would be very mild, and this is a miracle drug. I will say, my life and habits have changed. I have no desire to use any pills at the moment, and I don't expect that to change. I was abusing hydros after 2 shoulder surgeries.
Avatar f tn Lately, I've also noticed a strange amount of short-term memory loss. I used to pride myself on my ability to remember entire conversations almost word-for-word, but now, I've had friends telling me about chats that I don't even remember having at all. There are entire chunks of days that I honestly cannot recall - completely lost time.
Avatar m tn I have a good indicator of my ability to multi-task and handle mental challenges, and I DEFINITELY noticed a decrease in these abilities. I am not convinced that medication is a long-term answer for ANY non life threatining mental challenge. I have now reached the point where I would rather live my life feeling 'abnormal' than risk the problems associated with meds.
Avatar f tn I have been off of Lexapro for two years now, and still have problems with both long and short term memory. It is extremely frustrating . When I was still taking it, I had to search to see if some anti depressants are linked to memory loss . Though I didn't see any studies, at the time, there were many complaints by the people using them. That, alone,made me feel a bit better. Knowing you're not the only one dealing with certain things , selfishly makes me a bit more comfortable.
Avatar f tn My hair started falling out, and I had the shakes so bad that my handwriting—which I used to be proud of—became illegible. My short-term memory stopped working. It was difficult to have a conversation, because by the time I neared the end of a sentence, I had already forgotten what I was talking about. Things were bad, but I had no health insurance, which I thought meant that the only thing to do was try to ignore it, and hope that whatever was wrong with me would go away on its own.
718468 tn?1232418047 but a better med that is proven to be allot safer and better for Long term. Do you think maybe you could be going through Withdraws on the Xanax? As long as your not a drug abuser, which you dont sound like you are, then I think everything will be alright.
Avatar f tn lol, Jackie, yeah it is a bummer, especially when you have short term memory problems and have to try to retype it all over again,,, I was getting very frustrated,, lol I will go check it out, thanks
Avatar n tn The board ruled in her favor, that her insurance company had to cover her long term abx. Also, I have read that the CA forest ranger featured in "Under Our Skin" had to sue his insurance company to get them to pay for his treatment. He won. These precedents will help get you coverage, but you still may have to advocate for yourself. And some companies will be much worse than others.
Avatar n tn I am hoping that these symptoms begin to decrease soon. Well, they have gotten better than it was in the first 2 days. I am still wondering how long I can expect to have these side effects of withdrawal?
Avatar m tn He's also extremely hungry and thirsty. I've read that all of these are possible phenobarbital side effects. How long do these usually last before the dog gets used to the medication? I'm hoping that these are not signs that something else is wrong, though I am aware of the possibilities.
Avatar n tn During the worst episodes I cannot sleep for 36 hours, and one time for 48. I only pass out from sheer exhaustion. 4. My short term memory and concentration have been slowly fading. I have no insurance and no money. I am exhausted from sleeping only 2-3 hours a day for over two months. Is there any way I can get help from the government? I live in NJ, USA. A person can only endure so much.
21352 tn?1196466338 Frustrating. That's a polite term. My hat is off to you for such self control after dealing with thyroid problems for 13 years. I'm sure you could teach me much. In June of 2006 I told my GP I'd give him two months to fix me. He just looked at me kind of funny...
Avatar f tn distractibility, difficulty with concentration and focus, short term memory loss, procrastination, problems organizing ideas and belongings, tardiness, impulsivity, and weak planning and execution pretty much sum me up. I work full time in media productions for a large corporation. Every aspect of my life is demanding. Daily chores seem to be nearly impossible to accomplish. I cannot concentrate at work and it makes me feel so tired.
