Hi seema;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
There may be some age related changes in brain like atrophic changes or mental stress that can cause loss of memory .So at age of 62 with hypertension it can happen.Please get the patient to examine by a neurophysician to find the cause of short term memory loss if require get investigated.Once the cause is known the treatment will be easier to do so please consult a doctor.
Thanks

I have been having pain in the back of my head by my neck and goes all down to the middle of my back. Also my neck is stiff, my head is heavy. I have experienced dizziness, memory loss and pains and numbness in my arms. I have trouble sleeping and have muscle weekness. I also about a month ago had only what I can discribe as a prism effect in my left eye. It only lasted an hour or so but was slightly disturbing. Please tell me what to do.

Hello Sir

I have been over-masturbating and I'm experiencing these symptoms :

-Sadness
-Memory loss
-Lack of concentration
-Fatigue. Feeling tired all the time
-Lower back pain
-Stress / Anxiety
-Weak Erection
-Premature Ejaculation
-fuzzy vision
-Feel shy to talk to other

etc
On a site that I’ve read (I think it’s WWW.WWWW.WW , the doctor said lower my masturbation to about 2-3 times/day and take his medicine located on the site some where to replace the brain and health chemistry that I have lost such as the brain’s acetycholine, dopamine, and serotonin levels.

I'm still a teenager (18 years old) so I don't want to be ordering a product or else my parents will find out and that will put me in the most awkward situation.

Could you please suggest some medicine that I can buy from a store, please respond ASAP!!

Thank you

My partner took 4 1mg tablets of rapinirol tonight and has had significant memory loss and confusion. He was literally bouncing off the walls, didn t know who I was or who my 7 year old son was, swetting profusely, had no idea where he was. He was diagnosed with cellulitis and put on Bactrim 800 mg and Keflex 500 mg. Would these antibiotics interact with this drug? He is coming around a little now and I am not sure what to do. Any suggestions would be helpful.

hello, I am 16yrs old and have got into the habit of masturbuating since march. First the frequency was about twice in a day then it reduced to once in 2 days now it has further reduced to twice in a week. I would like to know that, has it affected my growth and led to a memory loss because now i forget things more frequently then earlier and also my height is 5 5 and is not increasing since last one year. So does masturbuation demage brain neurons?
