I am losing my mind and my fiancee.

I don't know what's going on and I already have a appointment with my doc, but lately I can't for the life of me remember certain things. I usually have a good memory and even a gift for memorization (i.e. drama scripts) but recently I can't remember things that happened the same morning. For example, on my anniversary I woke up with my fiancee and we went to a diner for breakfast, put our dog in the car and drove down the coast to find a nice little beach and spent the day there. When we arrived back at home, I could NOT, for the life of me, remember anything that had just happened in the last seven hours. It was only when my fiancee starting reminding me with great detail of what we did that I started to regain some idea of what occured.

I'm studying for my real estate license and have read every chapter in that book twice, but it just keeps 'falling' out of my head. Lyrics to songs that I have had memorized (time frame varies, could be for 5 years could be 5 months) are disappearing from my thoughts.

The first time the memory 'glitch' happened it was accompanied by a small headache focused in the back left side of my head (my left, behind my left eyeball) and it has not subsided since then. It also, occasionally, works its way to the front and makes my left eyeball hurt. It sounds weird, I know.

I used to be a hardcore germaphobe (mysophobic was the technical term I believe) and was able, through alot of psych sessions, overcome it. The other day, however, the dog peed in her box and was covered in urine, I went to let her out and she shook it off, splattering my face with drops of urine. I freaked out and had to immediately take a hot shower, which didn't help much, during which I went back to my scratching phase of my myso and scratched the skin off of the opposite side of my wrist.

All of these "abnormal" mind-sets are starting to worry me and most of all my fiancee. She wants to have kids but not kids that are going to have health problems. I agree, but I don't know what to do.

I thought I would share with the tilted world and see if anyone has an idea of what is causing this, some advice on what I should do regarding my fiancee, or some general insight they would like to share on the topic.

If memory lapses precede headaches, theres probably something there.

You know what to do already.

Go to a doctor.

Wait a sec. You won't remember reading this thread anyway, so any future replies will all be futile.

Like yelling at a deaf man who is about to befall some accident, how can I counsel a person who blacks out?

Crazy, man. I have walked through the rabbit-hole.

I'll second (or third maybe..) that, see a doctor soon. Noticeable memory loss could be symptomatic of something more serious.

How old are you? Have you had head trauma? Could someone be poisoning you? Have you had seizures? Alcoholic? Strokes? Take drugs? There are so many causes or possibilities I doubt anyone on the TFP might really know, you've done the right thing in heading toward a doctor.

Any diagnosis that one of us could give you would only serve to heighten the anxiety... Go see a doctor and see what a professional has to say.

I'm going to close this thread because you need to seek professional medical advice immediately- this is not a matter of our opinions or open for discussion.

You need to go see a doctor, now, and you're not going to get what you need from this message board.

When you've been seen by a doctor, and have some idea what's going on, you're more than welcome to come back and start a new thread if you'd like to talk about it. We're always here to talk things out- so let us know if/when you're ready.
