500374 tn?1210071413 One of his deficits was mild loss of short term memory. It comes and goes. Some times he would get confused about where he was at but all that is fine now. Just do memory games with your mom, buy memory game puzzles, do things that stimulate the brain. Get them brain cells connected again! Good luck to you and I hope your mom a speedy recovery!
Avatar n tn I'm 57 and have mild cognitive impairment. It affects my memory and learning. I was diagnosed about 9 years ago. I have an arachnoid cyst in my brain (left temporal lobe) and had a shunt inserted in 1998. I've also had 4 mini strokes. They were cause by hypercoagulable cerebrovascular disease with a circulating IGM (44) ( anticardiolopid antibody syndrome). These have all been stable for the last 10 years and I have not had any major problems.
1012964 tn?1251819426 Hi, One of the major complications of a heart surgery is stroke. You might have suffered a mild stroke while undergoing surgery or soon after and hence the symptoms of memory loss and confusion. The symptoms will get better with a proper management plan that involves medication, exercises, good nutrition and psychotherapy. Please consult a neurologist for the complete neurological examination and management. Hope this helps you. Take care and regards!
Avatar n tn I had a wonderful memory before. I did see a neurologist, he said i had short-term memory loss, he did a test on me and stated thats what is wrong. I dont know, do you??
Avatar f tn My mother is 78 years old and suffered a mild stroke about a year ago, which resulted in some memory loss and no peripheral vision on her left side. She does not remember recipes, some vacations taken and some of her friends names. Currently she seems to have gotten worse with her memory. She does not remember if she has eaten, or if I have stopped by to see her during the week.
Avatar n tn I remember looking it up on the internet at the time and some of the symptoms were short-term memory loss, loss of balance and short steps when walking. Do you know what he was referring to? He has since left his practice and is working at one of the hospitals recruiting Dr's as internists for the hospital. His replacement (recommended by him) has no idea what he was talking about (real promising). Can you tell me what he was referring to? I will remember it if I hear it or see it.
Avatar f tn My boyfriend of 3 years suffered a stroke late November 07 after surviving cancer, he was 29. The doctors said the damage in my boyfriend's brain is permanent, the stroke was not severe enough to handicap him but it has affected his memory and mental capacity. They are unsure if he'll ever recover his memory fully. He is recovering slowly but still has trouble remembering people including me.
Avatar f tn My partner has had a stroke which has caused memory loss. Short term. He is good some days remembering the day before and some days he is not. He was in the hospital for 6 weeks waiting for a bed in rehabilitation. He has just been checked in as of Thursday last week. He can walk talk shave eat feed himself as if he were a person who has never had a stroke. He suffers from short term memory loss. Will there be a recovery of that to be able to work.
Avatar m tn I was diagnosed with a mild stroke in September 2009, only sign was falling alot, worse memory than before. I get lost in a conversation using just ordinary words. A week ago I was diagnosed with Benign Tremor. I want to know if Benign Tremor eventually leads to a major stroke. My research shows my doc was right.
Avatar n tn I am confused, the neurologist I saw today said my MRI shows maybe MS or/and mild stroke? It reads nonspecific foci increased T2 signal in cerebral white matter. Differential considerations include demyelinating process, vasculitis or chronic microvascular ischemia. 2) Mild cortical atrophy? What is he telling me, I kept asking, but it is getting confusing.
Avatar m tn Does the blood in the brain absorb into the tissue and would this eleviate the short term memory loss. Or what is the usual outcome of the short term memory loss.
Avatar f tn s lost some eyesight which is her biggest thing but she also struggles with short term memory loss. She really has trouble remembering names and mostly things to do, some details from conversations. Her long term memory and even memory from a couple of days ago is good. Her neurologist told her it could be the start of Alzheimers...I'm a little shocked because she has no confusion, can sort tasks, no problems with her checkbook.
Avatar m tn Since she has blood pressure and diabetic issues, could be she fainted from those conditions and caused her probable temporary memory loss. On the other hand, sometimes if BP gets out of control, it can cause a stroke like incident, where a bleed in the brain will affect memory. If she cannot get in to see a doc right away, take her on over to the ER for evaluation, because if something serious has actually happened, they'll want to jump all over it.
Avatar f tn How can I regain brain and memory capacity after a mild stroke. Are there any med out that will help This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/1236702'>Recovering from fatigue followint a mild stroke</a>.
Avatar n tn unless several strokes have occurred (leading to what is termed a subcortical or vascular dementia) then the memory loss occuring following a stroke should be non-progressive, meaning that continued memory loss (worsening memory loss) should not be occuring. Memory loss after stroke can be due to depression, recurrent strokes, poor sleep due to sleep apnea, and other non-neurologic problems that can occur unrelated to stroke such as thyroid problems.
Avatar f tn I have had migraines sense I was 14 now I am 24 well in 2007 I had a cavernous malformation, stroke. Is it possable for me to be lossing my memory? I had an mri done 4 months ago and I couldn't remember. It is frusterating and need to know answers.
Avatar n tn My husband had an stroke 6 years ago in his thalamus which caused him to be confused, short term memory loss, some long term memory loss,etc. The good news is that he regained almost all of his functioning, but some small short term memory issues. 3 weeks ago he worked in the yard in 100 degree temps for several hours. The next day he woke up with the same symptoms as the stroke 6 years ago and we assumed he had another stroke.
Avatar n tn When the headache comes, she loses her memory again and only pieces of her memory come back when the headache is gone. Its the 5th day now and the hospital staff still can't figure out what causes the headaches and what problem she has. They have ruled out shingles or a stroke and most other things and are baffled by this mystery and are ready to give up. She doesn't have a history of any mental illness beside mild depression that was not being treated by any medication.
Avatar m tn She is 3 months post stroke and is making little progress. She suffers from short term memory loss and has no use of her left side. She has had 4 urinary tract infections and something called c-diff bacterial infection. THe doctors tell me that her short term memory loss and dellusional thinking is from the infections. Is this true and how long does it last? IS the short term memory loss temporary?
Avatar f tn re trying to say I have mental issues rather than had a stroke. Is this normal for a stroke patient to have to go through. They also found a 2.5 cm calcified meningioma in January, had another MRI done 7/27 but haven't received results yet. Neurologist won't give it to me until I schedule appointment, Have to have my daughter drive me to pick it up.
