Has anyone had ECT treatments for there bipolar?
Do you think that the neurologist will have answers on my short term memory loss from the ECT treatments? It is really messing up me paying my bills and just messing up everything for me. I don't know what to do and how to deal with this.

That would be really hard to lose some short-term memory and not know if it will be restored, @mrser52. I had a concussion several years back and my brain felt scrambled, and I know I was quite worried that it might be permanent. In this case, my brain went back to normal after a month.
How are you doing today?

My short term memory came back yesterday. I am so glad about it. But for some reason I can't eat without getting so nausea after I eat, so I don't know what to think about that except to stop eating. As long that I don't eat I don't feel sick.
Great news, @mrser52. Guessing you are feeling relieved. Are you attributing the nausea with the ECT treatment, or with something else?
I took these ect treatments a few years ago but now I just use a minimal dosage of antidepressants. However if I did not have a job to keep me busy then I easily fall back into depression
I work in home health care with the elderly. Even though I'm 75!
Hi, @georgette12 – did you find the ECT helpful?
Just a thought about your nausea problem: Often nausea can be a side-effect of a new med. Have you been taking any new meds?
I found ect somewhat helpful. But everyone does have a different experience. I think everything is worth a try at least once.

No I have not. I have had this problem since the ECT treatments.
