: I'm 19 yrs old, was diagnosed with CFS when i was 17 after numerous visits to different doctors all telling me that my problems were all in my head. i havent had much of a chance to really go into any type of therapy to help recover from this. i've tried several different herbal treatments, but my body gets used to them and they quit working. but what really bothers me is the fact that i have almost no short-term memory. i can remember what happened back in 2nd grade sometimes much better than i can remember yesterday. and i'm a college student, and this is really affecting my grades. are there any treatments that anyone knows of? i have to keep my grades up to keep my scholarships!
Short term memory is a problem for me too. I have started running bathwater and flooded the bathroom severly a couple of times. Once it filled up the heat duct pipes under the house and they had to be taken apart and drained. I have also been cooking and just walk away for a minute, and the next thing I know, I'm smelling smoke! I find that the days my pain and fatigue is the worst, those are the days I really can't think! Sometimes taking certain meds will cause short term memory loss. The worst part about mine is...I also have long term memory problems too. I homeschool my 14 yo daughter. I can read the books and afterward I can't tell you what we studied. She has a pretty good memory and I know we're doing something right since she tests 12th grade plus on most subjects. I find learning anything new almost impossible, so I feel for you. Good luck and best wishes.
