Thanks for your time and concern in posting on my Beth's memory loss.
I'll briefly answer your questions (via the back channel) send the other
questions/answer I've received in case you are interested and they help.
>Has the neurologist discussed transient ischemic attacks (this is not a
>typical presentation but worth asking about).
I don't know. I will ask and post an answer later. Beth is compiling a
list of every attack (they seem to be severe vs. minor and take place
while sleeping vs. awake) and her symptoms at the time, from her diaries.
>Is your wife takilng any
>medications (eg a tranquilizer once in while, etc), does she drink
>alcohol, use any "recreational drugs"?
Only birth control pills. No tranquilizers around, she's been on the
wagon (never drinks alcohol) all her life, no rec.drugs ever in the
>Anyone else who is biologically related to her with same symptoms?
Not that we know of.
The one question I have is whether my job stress could be causing this?
