I did forget to add he aches all over most of the time...
Hi, Thank you very much for your question; although it is quite difficult for me to give you a precise diagnosis here without being able to examine you, though I would try to provide you some relevant information about your health concern. You need a proper assessment and investigation here since there can be many causes for memory loss & concentration impairment. Most common causes of short term memory and concentration impairment are excessive stress, psychological reason, recent head injury, certain medications and hormonal imbalance. I would recommend you to see a neurologist who can evaluate the details of your case and could better determine the insight of your situation. In the meantime, try to do some meditation exercises (eg. breathing exercises), have a balanced diet and avoid stress. Hope this helps. Take Care & Regards.
Hi. My daughter has similar symptoms and was diagnosed with dysautonomia. Many doctors don't know about it. Check out
There is a forum on medhelp about it and you could check it out. You can also check out my daughters story on this site. Good luck and keep me posted.
Thank you very much for your responses.
I have got him an appointment with a neurologist this weekend so hopefully we will know more then.
I did have a look at dysautonomia as i had never heard of it, its difficult to say if thats it but was interesting so i will mention it to the gp, i have looked up just about every condition or cause but there are so so many things, i will post after the hospital and although i am not expecting a diagnosis of any sort you never know, i will just be pleased if they listen to him!
Theresa i hope your daughter feels better x
Just getting the doctors to listen is a huge thing - trust me!!! We mentioned dysautonomia to Whitney's docs after checking it out on here and he poo-pooed it...but had not better alternative diagnosis other than psychosomatic and we knew that wasn't happening - even got confirmation on that from a psychologist! Anyway, keep up until they can figure out whatever he has and get him treatment. We are our kids best and only advocates.
Hi just got back from Neurology and they said he has Aspergers-no great shock as i have done a lot of research and apparently when you reach puberty these things tend to become more noticable, they said it is possibly migraines causing his fuzzy head but he also has a reoccurring tooth abscess and that because he is so sensitive that could be making him feel very unwell, he has a needle phobia so has to go to hospital to have the tooth out oh what fun!
At least i know now so we can sort him out and looks like a lot more hospital visits to come yet and more research...
Glad you have some answers! So sorry you have to go to the hospital for the tooth. Hang in there!
