Hi guys, i see two of u have crohns. I have UC. I am NOT on methadone, but am on percocet, and have been for many, many yrs.
My PM doc says that my memory loss is not related to my pain meds, and my GI says that it IS related to my UC meds. I take 6mp.
My short term memory is horrible. I can have to conversation with someone, and turn around and ask them the same question a few minutes later. It has become quite a pain, and i even have friends who do not get it, and acutally poke fun at me for it (idiots...) I digress...
anyways, i am only 35 and this has been getting worse as the yrs pass. Can't find my glasses, oh, they are ON my face! Can't remember any meal i ate just yesterday, ect.... I would check w/ ur GI to see if it's related to ur meds, rather than ur pain meds...
