Hi, I have a question about sudden short term memory loss I'm experiencing

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

Topamax, Cymbalta, and I got a Toradol shot Friday. After that I saw the dds and got Nitrous Oxide, a very low dose for about 20 minutes. I've been having memory loss ever since that day.

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

Migraines and the night before all of this I wet the bed! I'm 35 and otherwise very healthy, no alcohol use at all

Doctor's Assistant: Is the headache episodic or daily? And what about nausea?

Daily.. no nausea

What questions do you have about the memory loss that I may address?

Ask Your Own Neurology Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Well I'm a nursing student and can't afford to fail. I want to know if there's anything I can do for this? Could it be from the Nitrous, and be short term? Could it be a type of partial seizure??
Neurologist: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 7 months ago

No, a partial seizure wouldn't cause problems with memory formation. Are you having trouble recalling old memories or are you having trouble forming new memories? And are you having trouble remembering simple things such as where you placed your keys or parked your car?
