Difficulty in memorizing and concentrating at the age of 31. Why? What should I do?
Hello, I am a 31-year-old male. Recently I have experienced a rapid loss in my ability to memorize new things and also I feel a lack of concentration. I often forget things, misplace things, and can’t recall things. Are these the starting symptoms of Alzheimer's or Parkinson's? My symptoms are so severe that even my sister has started pointing out this thing. Please help!!!
@ston Hello, sorry to hear that. Some degree of memory problems, as well as a modest decline in other thinking skills, is a fairly common part of aging. If you're concerned about memory loss, see your doctor. There are tests to determine the degree of memory impairment and diagnose the cause. Many medical problems can cause memory loss or other dementia-like symptoms. Most of these conditions can be treated. Possible causes of reversible memory loss include- Vitamin B-12 deficiency, Hypothyroidism, Sleep Apnea, Stress, anxiety or depression, and A tumor or infection in the brain that can cause memory problems or other dementia-like symptoms. It is better to consult a doctor. Thank You!
