Memory Loss With Tremors
I had Sarco in 03 with O2 of 75%. Been feeling bad for at least 2 weeks. In 06 I now have memory loss and tremors. Could this be a result?
Good, tough question: (Presumption "sarco" = sarcoid.) I'm not sarcoid expert. I'll offer a couple of thoughts that others can amplify. Do you have evidence of active disease now (blood tests, chest x-ray, other)? Overall, relationship sounds improbable to me (i.e. I doubt new symptoms related to old illness). ...Read more

Zoloft (sertraline): An SSRI commonly prescribed to treat depression and anxiety can precipitate a tremor in some cases. Anxiety can cause tremor as well, so it's important to review w/ ur doc & compare to pre-treatment baseline. Hair loss is not a side effect that is commonly associated with sertraline.

Propranolol & hair: Propranolol is in a class of medications called beta blockers. All beta blockers can cause hair loss, usually of the telogen effluvium type, meaning when the medication is stopped, eventually the hair will regrow. However, it is unusual to have a sudden onset of hair loss after 2 years, although still possible. Please see your dermatologist for an evaluation as there are other causes of hair loss. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Please help my mum said my dad has Parkinson's,has no tremors, the only test he's had is a memory one, can this confirm it alone! Doesn't sound right!
Parkinson's: A good diagnosis is going to involve a thorough neurologic exam combined with MRI, and can certainly be supplemented by a good neuropsychological exam, which is likely what your mum is calling a memory test. Also not every person with this disease will show significant tremors. ...Read more
