Any psychological reasons for memory loss?

Asked by Male, 23, Married
I'm 34 and tend to forget a lot of things for sometime. Am I suffering from memory loss problem? My memory used to be very strong but now I tend to forget small things. I'm hating this thing and its affecting with work. I don't know if its medical or psychological? I heard it can be because of less sleep. I sleep around 7 hours a day and do regular exercise. What could it be? Please advice.

I see that there has been a memory loss which has started off late. From your description, I am not so sure if the issue is with something you have come across/learnt recently or the information you have known since long..? It's also question of how efficiently you have been able to make new memories..? Have you also observed the difference in any other aspect of your life..??

You would have to discuss this issue in detail along with concrete examples with a professional. A physician would do. He/She may suggest consultation with a neurologist if required. I would like you to go ahead with this initial consultation with high priority. Till then do not worry too much about it. It is important to reach out to the help or a solution, when it is readily available around you than letting it linger in your mind for long time. Act on it & Take Care.
