Customer Question
My son will be...

My son will be 36 next month. He is married and has 3 beautiful little kids. He & his wife have a ball room dance studio that is doing well for them.
Since #2 was born 2 years ago

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

When # child was born he began having anxiety attacks that placed him in many er visits. zantac was the drug they gave him. later it was some antidepressant.

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Is there anything in particular that seems to make the symptoms better or worse?

What has been happening lately is that I have noticed he repeats his stories a lot & also forgets things we have told him. He also is extremely short fused.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the psychologist should know?

He was a premie..only by a month but as a child thru young adult he had seizures which he took tegretol & then the valporic acid drug as a 12-19 year old. I don't hink its dementia or alzheimers but so lost at what it could be & feel the burden of tackling this subject with him as I see how it's affecting his wife & kids

I would think he is much too young for Alzheimer's or dementia. The possibilities are numerous. It could very well be a medication issue. I would schedule a visit to a neurologist, then go from there as well as a psychiatrist. Several possibilities come to mind, but this is not the forum to discuss them.

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
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.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
