Answer

I can understand your concern, and even fear. I agree that you should have a workup, just to see. There are so many things that can affect memory. Many people on prescriptions need a change, because memory loss is a side effect of something they are taking. Depression and anxiety or just plain stress can affect memory. But you need a physician to check you out. Then you'll have a better idea of whether it's a physical disease that really has to do with your memory, or if it's something else that is causing the problem. Get checked out for your own peace of mind. Whatever they find, it will be a relief to know. Then you can deal with it.
