so about 4 years ago i was in training for the army and i passed out in the shower and my bf at the time told me i had a seizure. the docs didnt do any test when told that info nothing at all they just put me on drugs for the pain in the head. the headaches have been going pretty steady since except when i was preg they went away. also my memory has been getting worse and worse but i had our second on the 31st of july and at 9 days PP i started to get the headaches again and i have had one everyday doesnt go away with sleep or motrin. then the other day i was carry a cup of juice to the stove while making lunch for my oldest and i let go of it..i dont know why and didnt even know i did it til i slipped all over the juice on the floor. and then i cant remember when i get told things that was only a couple hours ago! I longer this goes on the more scared i get i have 2 little babies and a husband and im scared its something bad!

  • It could be a multitude of things ranging from a vitamin deficiency to something very severe. You need to see a doctor as soon as possible!

  • Either change doctors or keep on going back to the doctor tell they find out what's wrong with you.

  • you should probaly see a neurologist...I had headaches like that and the memory loss, turned out they were just migraines but you never know...A neurologist will probaly want an MRI to look at the structure and processes of the brain. Don't wait!

  • it could be something simple. I had problems with dropping things last year and memory problems. It turned out I have trigger points in my muscles and blood wasn't flowing properly. With massages and Physical Therapy they fixed me right up. Good luck but don't worry, it may be something quickly fixable.

  • you should change doctors... you can insist on testing...you don't have to just go with the flow...sometimes you have to be your own advocate----you could try taking a friend or someone else with you for support they can ask all the questions if you dont think you can---

  • Well it sounds like the doctors told you what they could do. Give you a type of medication. But you could not BF on it. You decided to not do what they recommended. You made a choice. You can't put it on the doctors. You decided this action not them.  I bet a civial doctor would have told you the same thing.

  • well since they told me that they dont know whats wrong with me and didnt even try to find out they just put me on meds i can put it on the doctors there are tests that they can do to look at my body and find out whats wrong BF or being pregnant but they did nothing! meds dont solve anything if you dont know whats wrong i tried one and it didnt work they just wanted to keep giving me different ones like a damn guinea pig!!
