What is memory loss?

Memory loss is another term for forgetfulness, which happens to almost everyone from time to time. But if memory loss occurs often or is severe, it could be the sign of a serious condition like Alzheimer’s disease, a form of dementia. That’s why seeking treatment at the first sign of memory loss is crucial.

  • Substituting words with incorrect alternatives

  • Difficulty remembering people, places, or events

  • Getting lost in familiar areas

  • Memory impairment that worsens over time

  • Asking the same questions over and over

  • Forgetting common words while speaking

How is the cause of memory loss diagnosed?

All Neurological Services diagnoses memory loss and its cause by reviewing your symptoms, discussing your medical history, and completing a memory loss exam. Your provider may order blood tests, monitor blood flow in your brain, and examine the electrical activity within the brain using painless, highly effective diagnostic tests.

Your neurologist answers any questions or concerns you have about your memory loss, and carefully explains the purpose of and what to expect during treatment. The earlier your specialist diagnoses a problem, the greater the chance of successful treatment.

What are common memory loss treatments?

Common memory loss treatments include lifestyle changes, medications, dietary supplements, and treating the underlying cause of memory impairment. All Neurological Services P.C. personalizes each treatment based on your unique needs. They can refer you to a specialist when necessary.
