Hi, Dr Ashori here, please give me a moment to reply.
The headache along with memory loss would make it important for you to have a neurologic exam done.
The fact that the pain comes and goes however makes it less likely to be a tumor or anything serious. Likely it's tension headache.
The memory loss can be due to excess stress or it could be due to a tumor, but memory loss because of a tumor or bleeding in the brain is very rare.
Are you able to move all your extremities without problem?
I see, so it sounds like it's a global effect, not just memory but also feeling a bit out of sorts.
Are there any other things going on besides that?
Any sleep issues, depression? Anxiety?
That's a good sign that everything else is okay.
Any chance you're taking some new medication or new herbals, supplements or not getting enough sleep?
No major stressors in your life that could be causing this?
Well I wouldn't freak out because it still doesn't sound serious.
But, I think it's time for an exam and maybe even a head MRI or CT scan.
Well that's not really abnormal though.
I couldn't tell you what I did yesterday and I'm a fairly intelligent 38 yo physician.
That's not necessarily a sign of memory problems.
Memory problems is not being able to name a pencil, forgetting your mother's name or forgetting your home address which you've lived at for 10 years.
Well stress is very likely to cause retarded ejaculation.
One a scale of 1-10 how high does your stress level get in the average day/week?
4 isn't bad but still high enough that it could explain the symptoms you are describing.
For stress it's a matter of meditation, exercise and practicing mindful techniques to not let your mind get overburdened with whatever is on your mind.
As for the retarded ejaculation, that's much tougher to treat. But hypnosis and cognitive behavioral therapy have been shown to be quite effective for some.
Others have used menthol products on the tip of the penis to help increase the sensation.
That's a good idea.
I think they will reassure you but I would feel better if you did see them.
