Short Term Memory Deficit
30 y/o male, Psych tests age 9 short term memory deficit. No hx of szs, trauma etc. no know neuro deficts. Physical, some thickening of lips perhaps gums otherwise wnl; mental intact, A/B student, college grad. General observations: seems to have some focus issues, turns on hair dryer in bed while reading, computer work, before going to sleep. Heard of this symptom before, but can`t recall dx., etiology, tx., or prognosis.
You really need to see a psychiatrist for an evaluation. the symptoms you are describing are too vague to be able to tell you what this may be. I do believe that a good evaluation could provide some answers and put you on the right track for treatment. Good luck!
