Hi NanaBee. I often feel that my short term memory has been sucked from my brain. I was diagnosed in 2005, but I can't erase the 2003 memory of a neurologist suggesting to me that I had somatiform (psychosomatic) disorder- WHILE he was giving me a spinal tap. Anyway, last visit my rheumy suggested I might want to get a neuro work-up for memory and balance issues. I empathize with your "lost mind." Many hugs and good luck.
