Memory Loss

4 posts in this topic

Hi-

I am just curious how many folks have trouble with their memory. I personally have trouble with mine. I am 25 years old, and really shouldn't be having this much trouble.

I have trouble remebering mostly details of events. I can tell you the basic facts, but sometimes the details of a story escape me. Memories are sometimes foggy, like things from a month ago or even a year ago, I just can't remember details of things. I might remember that "they happened" but no clue why, how, what color they were wearing, etc!!

Also, I will go to do something at my house, walk into a room and then wonder why I am there. I have forgotten what I was going to go do. This one has been really bad lately. Maybe I am just stressed, but It is bothering me.

It drives me CRAZY!! Let me know if anybody else has wierd stuff like this!!

-Jessica :rolleyes:

hey jess-

I know for sure that when I have an accident, the "Fog Brain" comes swooping down on me. the month before I got diagnosed, when I was really sick, I kept complaining that I was dumb. And everyone wa telling me, oh honey, your really smart. Yes, normally I am a reasonably bright individual, butI couldn't string two thoughts together for that month. Now, unless I have an accident, I am pretty clear.

i do do the walk into the room and forget why thing pretty often though. what works for me is to walk back to where I came from, for some reason that nearly always jogs my memory.

Well this isn't brain fog. I know how that feels and it isn't the same as this. This is just plain forgetting. I feel like an alztimers patient trapped in a 25 year old body!! (not all the time, just sometimes)

HMMMM ... I thought this was CRS (Can't Remember Stuff) which happens to other people my age, but then I'm not that old! :o If all of you, who are much younger than I am and have been gluten-free for a while, STILL have that brain fog, maybe this is just a sign of our times: too much information to process, too little time to do everything, and not enough brain 'downtime' through sleep, meditation, relaxation, etc. I would LOVE to hear that CRS is celiac related, so that after a long gluten-free period, I no longer get brain fog! :D Does anybody know of any studies linking those symptoms to celiac or disappearance of those symptoms after going gluten-free for awhile?

    • I sit in an ice bath after a long training (running or riding).  It speeds my recovery, I swear!  
    • Oh, one last thing..... ICE PACKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You'll feel better. Hey, you have a tub? Want to join the polar bear club in the privacy of your own home? Fill that thing with cold water & dump a 5 or 10 lb bag of ice in there. I'm serious.
    • I don't care what she specializes in, you MAKE her do a dh biopsy. I'm not being mean. Please understand that. It's just that I've heard this a thousand times before - no, a thousand one hundred!  Here's another thing ~~~ get her to order a eTG aka TG3 serum (blood test). That is specific for dh.  Oh gosh! Don't you just hate the ones in your ears???!!!!! Nah, we hate ALL of them! I swear though, when those suckers get going in & on your ears it just drives you stark raving mad!!!!! You've convinced me there is more than ample reason to strongly suspect it's dh.  Here's a tip..... the patterning the lab will be looking for is very easily destroyed by scratching so pick you out some prime places that are new & maybe, just maybe you haven't scratched them to smithereens thus far, and make some super thick gauze bandages & place them over those places so even if you reach to scratch (& we know you will! right?) the gauze will remind you & hopefully help to protect it. The biopsy needs to be taken from a clear area adjacent to a fresh lesion. No steroid creams okay? Not till after the biopsy. BTW, if she wants to put you on steroids after the biopsy be warned, 99% of the time there is such a backlash of the rash the moment you go off the steroid that you will wish you were never born. A dx of dh IS a dx of celiac disease & no further testing is needed. Please come back & update us after you see her tomorrow. In the meantime you have my heartfelt sympathy. Take those cold showers & grit your teeth. Hopefully you will soon be able to go gluten free & start getting some relief.   
    • Extremely itchy and keeps me up at night to the point I was taking cold showers at 3am.   Currently my ears, scalp, feet, and chin just will not stop itching, my elbows have the rash and look purple. Eventually the rash will heal and leaves scars that seem to be purplish in color. I have not tried gluten free diet yet.  Waiting for all the testing to stop.  The new allergist i am seeing tomorrow specializes in skin disorders.
    • I am so sorry for your suffering.  Your story drives home the point that having Celiac Disease drives us all to do our own research and try to find a doc to help--if we are lucky. I wish you a speedy recovery and my most earnest wish that you are NEVER cross-contaminated again! You are a real trooper (little comfort, I know).  Wish I could do more.
