Can my 56 yrs old husband have brain injury due to being hit in the back of the head all the time when he was a school age child?

My husband has been having problems with his short term memory for a very long time and I was wondering could this be because he was hit in the back of the head by his father on a regular basis. He does not remember what he reads and has to go back, plus, he doesnt comprehend things that well anymore. This is starting to become an issue because we argue about things he doesnt remember us talking about. Please help?

In my opinion, your 56 years old husband could have open and closed head injury. Open and closed head injury is a type of brain injury that is caused when the force that hits a person's head is great enough and the skull can fracture or become out of place. I would recommend you visit a doctor for check up and get more information.

It is a long story it may not be due to any early childhood injury. It may be DEMENTIA a disease of short term memory loss, but if not treated it may cause huge problems too. You should contact some goods PSYCHIATRIC immediately before it is too late.

Short term memory function is associated with the left parietal lobe - which is not in the back of the head. Have y'all seen a neurologist?

You should definitely get him checked out. Could be the start of Alzheimer's.
