    i am convinced that my memory is deteriorating, i cant seem to remember things that people tell me anymore, i forget things all the time. my friends have also started to comment and quite frankly get aggrevated when i cant remember things

    i have only started to notice it for the last year or so as i used to have an excellent memory. it is starting to affect my uni work as i cant remember things i have learned from as little as the day before

    i would go to the doctors but i think i may just be being silly, does anybody know if this kind of thing happens at my age (20) without serious injury or something?

    sorry, erm I dunno, eating certain things can help to improve your memory such as apples and eggs I think but I think most people have memory problems hence the noticeboards inclusive in most university rooms and I could never get by without my student planner. I remember my ex g/fs gran telling me once that her mother was worried about having a bad memory and she went to the doctor and he pointed at all the notes pinned on his wall and said he had a bad memory too. I wouldn't worry about it.

    Me too.

    I'm 20.

    I know the exact reason, i drink too much.

    Will go back to normal when i quit.

    Kinda ironic, as my memory was my best tool in my life.

    I have a bad memory. That's why I have a calendar, a noticeboard, a whiteboard and two desks, not to mention endless supplies of pencils and paper. I'm the least forgetful person I know now, whereas before I did this I was as forgetful as everyone else.

    my brother has epilepsy and one of the problems because of it is he has a really really bad memory. he started taking gincgo biloba (not sure about the spelling there) and his memory has definatley improved. it takes time though you wont be seeing over night success if you do decide to take and dont forget about drug interactions! so if youre taking any medication at the moment best talk to your dr
