Customer Question
My husband came home...

My husband came home this evening and stated he had forgotten a portion of his day and that he was confused by this. Within the next 2 hours he repeated questions and stories to me and was unaware of the fact that he was doing this. He is 68, in good health and has not exhibited this behavior before.

Doctor's Assistant: What are all the symptoms you're experiencing (e.g. loss of appetite, fever, rash)?

I stated those in my first response

Hi, Dr. Mo here with JA. Please let me review the information and I'll reply shortly.

Has he had any recent infection or has he taken anything over the counter recently?

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
no
Doctor: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 7 months ago

The concern here would be a stroke or a bleed in the brain. An infection could cause this as well but he would have fevers. Has he had a chance to be seen by a doctor in person?

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
No not yet, he will call his doctor in the morning but I wasn't certain if we should act sooner. No recent infection.
Doctor: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 7 months ago

Based on those symptoms I would rather have him be seen tonight if possible. Again, the concern would be if something was going on in the brain and that's something we can check for in the ER and do blood work as well.

Ok, if you feel that's best I will suggest it.
Doctor: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 7 months ago

I rarely think that it's urgent but in this case I would definitely recommend it. I think if there is anything going on it's better to catch it early.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
