My fiancé (23) has never been very good at remembering names and faces, but more recently (last 5 years); he has had problems with his short term memory. He forgets what he is talking about mid sentence; he sometimes ends a conversation mid sentence because he has forgotten that he was talking. He is extremely introverted and I used to believe that this was the cause of most him memory problems. Just too much going on upstairs, but its getting worse, recently he told me that he was invited to go on break with a friend at work, and afterwards forgot if he even went. He had to ask his friend if he went on break with him. Now break consists of getting on the elevator, ridding down 5 stories, hanging out outside for 15 minutes, and chatting. I myself can not imagine not remembering this. I am extremely worried because today he asked me if his computer monitor was shaking, because to his eyes it was wobbling up and down. In reality that was not the case. This combined with the memory loss frightens me.
We have had him tested for thyroid issues and those tests were fine. His Mom and I, though never tested, believe he is hypoglycemic, because if he doesn’t have food in him he gets EXTREAMLY agitated. He also doesn't get enough sleep. I also know that he is under some stress with work. I keep trying to get him to go to the doctor, because I am worried that he needs to see a neurologist, but he refuses to go.
After reading this do you think that it is pertinent to go to the doctor? How can I convince him? What might be wrong?
Thank you so much
