Re: Short Term Memory Loss

From: Harold


Without going into my full story, I will tell you that I am a 42 year old male and I have had a few episodes of V.V. One in particular was major that involved an ambulance ride to the hospital. This episode involved extreme short term memory loss. When the ambulance attendant brought me around I didn't know who I was, how I got there, my name, as a matter of fact I had lost all ability to even speak for the first little while. I couldn't form words never mind sentences. It was thee most frightening experience I have ever had. After I was stabilized at the hospital and had oxygen and an I.V., my memory started to come back and I had regained full function within 2-3 hours.

I hope this helps answer any questions you might have or at least help that you know someone else out there has experienced something similar.

Good Luck... Harold
