Problems: Problems with attention, memory, mood, sleep regulation, coordination and bladder control could reflect a process affecting the entire brain or multiple parts of the brain, but are unlikely to be caused by something affecting a portion of the brain or a portion of the spinal cord.

My dad has 2 grade4 brain tumours his been on high doses of morphine recently he is losing his memory didn't remember me today is this normal?
Sorry to hear this: If your dad does have high grade gliomas, these are tough to treat, and the tumors could be large enough to cause cognitive loss, but morphine possesses anticholinergic side effects and can cloud memory and other intellectual functions, and even cause delusions and hallucinations. Sometimes, some restoration can be achieved by using memory enhancing agents (donepezil, etc). ...Read more

Haldol (haloperidol) is known for: Hellacious side effects including muscle rigidity to the point of posture distortion and/or muscular immobilization. Injectable Haldol (haloperidol) is still used in severe cases, or in medication resistant cases where meds really ARE indicated because the consequences of not using it are worse. Prolixin also enjoys a similar bad reputation. The good news is, your brain is not likely damaged. ...Read more

A definite maybe?!: Sle can affect the central nervous system, but it is difficult to prove.

Coup de sabre?: It sounds like you're describing something called en coup de sabre. This is a kind of linear scleroderma, or autoimmune scarring of the skin. If it is confined to your forehead or scalp, you do not need to worry. If you start to notice visual changes, or have any asymmetry in the shape of your face, see your doctor as this could be part of a syndrome called parry-romberg. ...Read more

As described in the answer of my colleague, normal pressure hydrocephalus (nph) is a rather common condition afflicting many patients.
The patient should be evaluated by a neurologist, and often a spinal tap can be performed to remove some fluid-volume in assessing the patients probable response to a shunting procedure. If the patient does well after the tap, the chances of a favourable outcome after shunting are very good. The shunting procedure as such is in most cases very low risk and requires only a short surgical procedure and commonly a 1 night hospital stay. ...Read more

What's needed is an astute physician who can take a detailed history, perform a careful neurologic examination, & if indicated, order appropriate brain imaging. There's no magical crystal-ball ESP way to answer your question. ...Read more

Wait till tomorrow: Anxiety/depression CAN make you "foregetful" but not labrynthitis. At any rate, you'd be surprised how much your brain is PAYING ATTENTION even when YOU'RE NOT. What may be a blur now due to other things on your plate will be much more accessible and clear to you in the morning when your brain has organized things a bit for you. Be patient. More questions?
