stroke w/short term memory loss
I;m 46 had 3 strokes in early april, very blessed I was left with Horners syndrome and short term memory loss. After 2 1/2 months my memory loss is getting worst instead of better. I also have Diabetes-controlled, had a gastric bypass and lost 80 lbs my weight is ideal now.  Still smoking a few cigarettes a day.  I don't understand why I am have more memory loss now?

Hi

Sorry to hear about your strokes :(

Please give up the ciggies.  The last thing your brain needs now is less oxygen because of them.  It may even be giving you ongoing ministrokes.

You've had a few warnings from the strokes, you may not get any more.

HTH

I had a minor stroke in my cerebellum eight weeks ago.  I still have very avid memory loss.  It is only short term but drives a gal crazy,  If I do not write it down...it does not get done.

Hope you get better soon
