Question: Moderate Memory Loss in 24yo male


 thesailingpreacher - Thu Nov 19, 2009 10:24 pm

Is there any possible neurological explanation for moderate short and long-term memory loss a 24 year old male who is a non-drug user, non-drinker, and has no history of severe head trauma? The memory loss has gotten progressively worse over the last year. This is getting extraordinarily frustrating.

Same for me. I am 22 years old. This memory loss started at the age of 18 and has become worse ever since. I am getting bad grades in subjects that require memorizing stuff. When i read a book i forget what happened in the first half or even the last line that i read and have to read it all over again. My connection making abilities have also been affected. Like when my friends are talking about something it takes me a while to realize what they are talking about. This never happened before.

I also have pain in my head sometimes. Mostly it is in the area between the two eyebrows. I feel pain here when i am outdoors and it is a sunny day or when there are people around me that i do not know.

Any suggestions about my memory loss??
