      My endo told me the very same thing when I brought up
      memory problems. He told me that I must not be paying
      attention. I was furious..especially since every medical
      text I had researched on thyroid problems said exactly
      the opposite. That was 1994 and I haven’t seen him
      since. I’ve found that my memory banks fluctuate between
      optimum and okay. I still can’t get out of the habit of
      writing myself notes though! Guess I’m paranoid of having
      another Graves moment!

        Very surprised your endo didnt think memory loss was a symptom of Graves. One of the first visits I had with my endo, he asked me how my memory is. Sounds like your endo needs to bone up on the syptoms. It is very common knowledge in all the literature out there that we have memory loss as well as depression etc….

        Havent heard anyone talk about long term memory loss. I have the short term but also fear of the long term. Seems it gets harder to remember things from along time ago as well as the new day to day issues. Also there are times when my mind goes blank and cant remember a phone number that I have known for years. Thank god it comes back in a few minutes, but it is a scary feeling.
