I am concerned about some of the symptoms Ive been having

Resolved Question:

I am concerned about some of the symptoms I've been having recently. About three weeks ago I began taking QVAR twice a day for asthma. Ever since then I've felt sort of weird, most accurately described as anxious and spacey. Something today, however, has me really concerned about what's going on. This morning I got up and walked outside to greet my mother and our new puppy and chatted for a few minutes before going inside. My mother swears that she showed me and discussed new toy she had gotten for our puppy and apparently I responded saying it was going to be her favorite. I have literally zero recollection of this and would swear on my life that it never happened. Even thinking back to this morning it took me some effort to recall exactly what I did step-by-step. I've noticed that recently I have been forgetting things more easily which is highly unlike me, I'm generally sharp as a blade and remember minute details. This, especially not remembering an entire conversation this morning, has me enormously anxious for fear that something major is going wrong. Is this something that could be related to QVAR or is it stress? I'm starting my sophomore year in college and am in the process of moving into my new apartment so that is definitely creating a lot of stress but I'm skeptical that this type of memory lapse is stress related.

hello, do you have any tremors, etc?

Customer:

Not really

Dr. P. Jyoti :

well let me reassure you

Dr. P. Jyoti :

this is not a serious problem and is due to stress

Dr. P. Jyoti :

at your age memory loss is overwhelmingly due to stress and not due to any actual disease condition

Dr. P. Jyoti :

the feelings of being spaced out, etc are all symptoms of stress

Dr. P. Jyoti :

the qvar is not likely to be related

Customer:

so it is most likely not HIV/brain tumor/anything else like that

Dr. P. Jyoti :

dont worry about this, it is entirely due to to stress

Dr. P. Jyoti :

not at all

Dr. P. Jyoti :

it is definitely not due to anything like that, dont worry

Dr. P. Jyoti :

its just stress and nothing else

Dr. P. Jyoti :

any further questions?

Customer:

No, I went to see my doctor today as a checkup on the QVAR and he suggested I take it 3x daily and I explained to him that I have had a persistently upset stomach and odd appetite for about two weeks and he suggested stress as well

Customer:

The memory loss was just very very concerning for me

Dr. P. Jyoti :

thats right, i can appreciate your concern

Dr. P. Jyoti :

but dont worry, its not a neurological problem or something like that

Dr. P. Jyoti :
