Memory problems include any inability to recall events. Short-term memory loss means that you cannot remember recent events, while long-term memory loss indicates that you cannot remember events from the distant past. One of the most common myths is that the normal aging process causes memory loss. Memory loss is actually indicative of an underlying condition.
A lack of sleep can worsen certain medical conditions, such as diabetes, hypertension, obesity, and memory loss.
What Causes Memory Problems?
Common causes of memory loss are stress, depression, nutritional deficiency, head injury, prescription drugs, and sleep deprivation. Memory loss may also indicate dementia or infectious diseases, such as HIV.
What Are the Symptoms of Memory Loss?
The earliest signs of memory loss associated with an underlying medical condition include the following:
- Forgetting common words while talking or mixing up words (saying “table” instead of “bed”)
- Getting lost in familiar neighborhoods while driving/walking
- Taking longer to finish familiar tasks
- Having difficulty following directions/maintaining a train of thought
- Having sudden, unreasonable changes in behavior or mood
Early medical consultation for these symptoms can prevent health-related complications associated with memory loss.
How Is Memory Loss Diagnosed and Treated at Advanced Neuro and Spine Institute?
Treatment for memory loss begins with an accurate diagnosis of your condition and any underlying causes. Your doctor at Advanced Neuro and Spine Institute takes a medical history and performs physical and neurological examinations. The results of these examinations are used to recommend further evaluation and treatment.
