We all forget things sometimes, and though irritating, it usually isn’t an issue. When it happens more often, it is somewhat alarming, especially when you’re forgetting things you should have no trouble remembering. These include memories, new events, work tasks, or other vital details.
Though often a sign of normal aging, memory loss could be associated with neurological conditions. These could include brain infection, head trauma, brain tumors, MS, stroke, or dementia. All these possible causes require medical attention to prevent further problems.
