I was diagnosed with VIPoma this past March. I have had Ultrasounds, CT's, MRI's, Octreotide Scan, MIBG, Pill Cam and have not been able to pinpoint the location of the tumor. My doctor states that eventually it will show itself. Has anyone had this issue where their blood work is stating VIPoma but location has not been found? This all started with my family physician that I originally seen for chronic diarrhea, flushing, rash on arms & trunk during symptoms, fatigue, lightheaded, sweats & fever, he ran the VIP lab test as a last possibility but never expected it to come back positive. Here I am 7 months later still not knowing. We put the testing on hold for a year. I am currently on Sandostatin LAR Depot 200 mg injections biweekly along with Octreotide 200/1ml injections up to 4 daily if needed. I have hypothyroidism and on Synthroid 50mcg daily. Lately I have been experience memory loss, repeating myself, having a hard time articulating what I am trying to say enough to where my family is pointing it out. I am sure my boss & coworkers are noticing also but just not saying anything. I need the injections for the symptoms but this memory issue is terrible. Has anyone else experienced memory loss? If so, did you stop the injections and is there another medication? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Why do prescribing doctors not know this? I am so happy for Nucyta. It does not give the "Joy feeling like other opiates" I have awful memory loss from the week or pill one after the year I have been on it. I am having a conversation and I forget in that instant, what we were talking about. It has gotten so bad, my wife serves are my memory. When she sees me having difficulty, she will say something to bring in the subject. When I am back in the game. I do not forget like stuff the next day, although if not something super serious, to me anyway, I may not remember. It is the immediate loss of memory all day and night. I bring this to my Pain Management doctor, he shrugs like he has never heard it. This med is expensive, as retired Military costs me $75 a month co pay for the ER and IR. It is so nice that it is not all in my head LOL, that this is happening. I just need to know, do you stop that effect once no longer on the medicine or I am going to be like this for life?
I have been on xyrem since Nov 2016. I know it causes me to have anxiety, but I'm really concerned about memory loss. I feel so much better with the sleep I am getting now, but memory loss is a big problem. I notice it is much worse when I am stressed or worried. I am new to the group nd would like to know about others' experiences.
I am suffering from short term memory loss after taking the antibiotic Bactrim. When I tell my doctor about the systems they tell me I do not know what I am talking about. As anyone had the same happen?
Basically I am wanting to know if my suspicions are correct. Does Lamotrigine affect your brain and give one symptoms of dementia? If that is true then I can reverse those symptoms of dementia by not taking the drug lamotrigine. Also the other brain foods which help the brain will reverse dementia effects. Those food items are bananas and coconut oil. I am hoping this is true. It seems to be working out without too much problems. I want to buy the "brain book". It should be helpful in directing me for good foods to limit dementia. At this point my neurologist will not be my doctor any longer because I do not want to take the lamotrigine drug. I have been taking the drug lamotrigine as an antiseizure drug. I was taking 100mg lamotrigine in the AM and PM. Because my symptoms of dementia are substantial, I will not take the drug. This means I must get rid of the stress in my life which is my husband. Now he has Multiple Sclerosis. I have been waiting for a divorce from my husband for over a year. He lives in TX and I live with our kids in GA with no income, no job, and no drivers licence. I believe if I get divorced and get an income, I will be stress free. Which will mean no more seizures and memory loss.
