Diagnosed with cervical disc herniation and degenerative disc disease. Memory loss and neck pain. Symptoms of the disease?

Hi, I am a 40 year old female, diagnosed with cervical disc herniation and cervical degenerative disc disease . I saw a Neurosurgeon last year until I felt somewhat better. I did not have the surgery that was recommended. I tried exercising and apparently hurt my neck again. But this time I am having memory loss too, is this normal? I could not remember my home phone number, my husbands birthday, my insurance companies name, etc. Please advise... Shea

Thank you for posting your query.

Memory impairment is not related to the cervical disc herniation.

It is due to brain disease. The most common reason could be a small blood clot in the brain.

A CT scan of the brain can help in diagnosis.

Please consult a Neurologist for evaluation and treatment.

Wishing you good health,
