28 yrs old. Work around 72+ hours a week. I constantly forget so many things & can't concentrate sometimes. Is it just tiredness or could it be more.

28 yrs old. Work around 72+ hours a week. I constantly forget so many things & can't concentrate sometimes. Is it just tiredness or could it be more.

Stress and fatigue: 72 hours of work a week is A LOT!! When you work that much, you often don't get enough sleep (because you don't have enough hours to do the rest of your life). I'm not sure if "pregnancy" is a current condition, but if so....then 72 hours of work per week may actually be dangerous to you/your unborn child. Do everything you can to bring your life back in balance; if persists, pursue a doctor eval ...Read more

Does labyrinthitis and/or anxiety make you forget things? Like, you just woke up and ate but feel it was hours ago. Does it affect your memory

Anxiety and Memory: Anxiety can definitely impact memory. Anxiety is typically our body's way of preparing a person to manage a threat. When this occurs our body activates its "fight or flight" response to save our life if we were in eminent danger. When activation occurs without an immediate threat, it is called anxiety. Fear thoughts r great when facing danger. Not so good when not and this can impact memory. ...Read more

Depends on reason: You should be fine by now but the reason is important. Was this directed by your medical provider or was this a dosage you decided for yourself. In the future ask your provider if you are instructed to take more than 8 in 24 hours as to why. If you self-decided this dose in the future check with your medical provider before you start to take them to ensure the reason matches the dosage. ...Read more

If you forget to delay a small breakfast after taking Carafate (sucralfate) (e.G. Only waiting a half hour), do you get any benefit (or harm) from having taken it?

If you forget to delay a small breakfast after taking Carafate (sucralfate) (e.G. Only waiting a half hour), do you get any benefit (or harm) from having taken it?

Yes, but a bit less: It is recommended that Carafate (sucralfate) be takenon an empty stoomach 1 hour before meal or two-three hours after. The presence of food interfere with its ability to work--binding/coating the ulcers etc...So, taking it a half an hour before you should get some benefit (no harm should come from this). If you have additional concerns, post them here on healhtap. Com or consult your doc...Good luck. ...Read more

I have terrible migraines that last hours and I twitch before I go to bed at night. Do you think I have simple partial seizures? I also get confused easily. I forget things easily.

I have terrible migraines that last hours and I twitch before I go to bed at night. Do you think I have simple partial seizures? I also get confused easily. I forget things easily.

While: While there is an association of migraines with seizures, the history is certainly not diagnostic. A few questions would be in order:

how long have you had migraines?
Do your headaches come with nausea, vomiting, sensitivity to light or sound?
Are there any triggers?
Is there a family history of headaches or seizures?
Have you ever lost consciousness or suffered significant head trauma?

I would suggest you see a neurologist to sort these things out and determine your best course of action.

Good luck and well wishes. ...Read more

How long does it take to get dehydrated. Sometimes I forget to drink for hours. My total protein was high one day in er. I had a panic attack, ?

It depends: Getting dehydrated depends on many factors -- how physically active you are, how warm and dry or humid your environment is, how you're dressed, how much you drink, your electrolyte status, etc. All these are variable. Baseline water intake for most is at least 8, 8oz glasses of water per day -- more if needed. You can get dehydrated before you feel thirsty, esp in low humidity places. ...Read more

Sudden sharp pain in right chest started 24 hours ago, hurts to breathe, can't sleep because of pain. Go to emergency room? 42 yrs, male, inactive...Took tylenol and aspirin and the pain is much better if the pain goes away should I just forget it?

Sudden sharp pain in right chest started 24 hours ago, hurts to breathe, can't sleep because of pain. Go to emergency room? 42 yrs, male, inactive...Took tylenol and aspirin and the pain is much better if the pain goes away should I just forget it?

This: This may well be a musculoskeletal pain related to prior activity, but other causes are possible. A blood clot traveling to your lungs can cause this type of pain. Particularly if you have a history of blood clots, you should have this looked into by your doctor. Bedrest, cigarette smoking, a family history of blood clots, fractures in the pelvis or legs, heart failure, obesity, recent surgery, blood that is more likely to clot (hypercoagulability), cancer, taking Estrogens or birth control pills all increase the risk of blood clots forming. Blood clots in legs veins are most common in adults over age 60, but can occur at any age. Sitting for long periods when traveling can increase the risk of blood clots. This most often occurs when one or more of the risk factors listed above are also present.
Warning signs of a blood clot traveling to your lungs include: unexplained sudden onset of shortness of breath, chest pain or discomfort that worsens when you take a deep breath or when you cough, feeling lightheaded, dizziness, fainting, rapid pulse, sweating, coughing up blood, or a sense of anxiety or nervousness. ...Read more

I forget lot. Of thing and I am only 50?

Get tested: Forgetfulness can be an symptom of early changes associated with dementia (including alzheimer's disease). Since it is easier to slow down deteriorating memory and mentation than it is to reverse losses - start investigating causes early. Prior head injuries, dietary choices, medications, lack of sleep, and too much on your plate often contribute. ...Read more
