    Lately I've been having noticeable short term memory problems and I'm not sure why. The other day I forgot Alicia Vikanders name even though I've known who she is for a long time and have a crush on her. Yesterday I forgot a unit name in starcraft 2, a game Ive been playing for 5 years. Today I forgot my Uncles name and it took me a minute to remember it. These are all things I should not be forgetting, ever.

    I've noticed I have had a lot of trouble remembering things lately, to the point where I can't even remember things for more than a few minutes sometimes. Last weekend I was at my parents house and my mom told me not to use the water because she was going to take a quick shower. Within 2 minutes I was using the tap to rinse my hands off and had completely forgot about it.

    My short term memory has really been degrading. At work people will ask me if I've seen someone and I cant remember, only to remember 5-10 minutes later that they walked by me before I was asked.

    There have been times where I forget a piece of information, then i remember it, then i forget it again. It could be something like a name or a word or anything. I don't know if it's from stress or something else.

    Does anyone else have this problem? Im only 30.

    depends how bad it is might want to get it checked out I guess.

    I sometimes worry about my memory. I always forget where I leave my keys lol. So stupid but it drives me crazy. And if I run into someone from highschool or they'll tell me a story and i'll have no recollection of the person or of the story. Sometimes I think I might have been hit in the head a few too many times.

    I ran into a chick at tim hortons ordered my meal. And she goes, 'you don't remember me do you?" and I'm like ugghh...no? She goes we had art class together in high school you don't remember. I ask what her name is and I'm just like ohhh..yeahh..but I had no idea who it was. Stuff like that kinda freaks me out sometimes cause I think I should probably recognize her or at least a name- high school wasn't that long ago and our school wasn't that big.

    I also have found that I have been going in to rooms and forgetting why I went there. Like I might go to the basement to check something in the storage room, but by the time I get there I dont remember why I went there, and Ill just get a drink from the fridge and go back upstairs. Then I'll remember after why I went down there and it wasn't for a drink.

    Yes but I smoke lots of marijuana so that is probably why.

    I don't have memory problems but I do have difficulty staying focused and alert.

    I started taking acetyl-carnitine supplements and believe it or not I do feel a difference. Give it a shot, it's supposed to be beneficial to the overall brain health

    Loosen the belt around your neck when you fap. That should marginally help

    yes, yes and yes.

    i think im so stressed out that it may be causing it but im not totally sure. the last time I was this stressed I was having panic attacks and my blood pressure was through the roof but I havent had any panic attacks lately, just trouble remembering.

    I shouldnt have started smoking weed again because im allergic to it, but i just need an escape from life.

    i did take 1 allergy pill yesterday but i dont do it often

    well, if you have true, diagnosed panic attacks, at least within the past few months, then this would be something to work on with a professional. the smoking weed is a big problem, too, and prob. contr. to such a loss in 'short-term' memory. drinking is dependent on amt. of drinking, obv., so look into your habits. maybe you're working yourself up a bit?
