User :   My girl friend was in a car accident about 3 months ago. She is suffering from short term memory loss. She has been seeing a chiropractor for adjustments. He had asked her if she was experiencing memory loss, she had told him no. At first she was able to remember things (conversations) during the day. But at night she didn't remember much after a certian time. Over the course of 3 months she has been experiencing these same symptoms during the day. As though the condition is getting worse. Now it comes and goes anytime through out the day.Is there anything that can be done to stop this or slow down the progression of her memory loss. I'm getting frustrated having the same conversations with her every day because she cannot remember anything. Her chiropractor told her to doodle, but she hasn't done that. She is too stubborn to consult anyone. I need to know if there is anything I can do about this so that I can help her. She doesn't have a history of nuerological conditions in her family although she did have a AAAAAAA tumor when she was a child and she loss the sight in her left eye. Supposedly she could lose her sight in her other eye later in life. She is 18 years old.
