Rubella shot has a memory loss side effect in adults?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Does anyone know? Ever since I was jabbed with that stupid needle, I don't remember actually saying it was ok. (I was heavily drugged for 12 or so hours after the birth.) I've had problems with my memory. It didn't bother me until I couldn't remember my child's birthday. I had no idea when it was I drew a complete blank. I know that a complication of rubella happens to be memory loss, so it makes me wonder if it was the shot.

So if anyone has any ideas LMK. Thanks.

How old is your child and how long ago did this happen?

I’m really not trying to sound snarky but I have memory loss from being a mom lol. I can’t remember anything anymore. I have had to have 2 bank cards replaced because I keep misplacing them, lost my keys 2 times, etc. Lack of sleep can cause memory loss.

I’m not sure if it could be a side effect of the shot. Does it say that in the package insert?

You might not have said "it's ok" specifically. You probably signed a global consent form when you registered at the hospital.

I have had memory problems since receiving MMR as a young adult (several times, long story), long before becoming a mom. Prior to this, my memory was near photographic, so the deterioration was recognizable pretty quickly.
