Forgetfulness Memory Loss

So far, your answers indicate that you don't have symptoms of depression or anxiety, that alcohol is not an issue, and that your medications don't seem to be relevant to your change in memory.

An underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism) can sometimes cause decreased memory. But it would be unusual for memory loss to be the only symptom.

Other symptoms of an underactive thyroid include:

- Constipation

- Difficulty staying warm

- Dry skin

- Fatigue

- Muscle aches

- Weight gain

Do you have any of these symptoms?

Yes, I am experiencing some of these symptoms.

No, this does not sound like me.
