  1. Lack of sleep is the most common cause. Getting very little restful sleep can cause changes in mood and anxiety, which can lead to memory impairment.
  2. Many drugs can affect memory, which include tranquilizers, antidepressants, blood pressure drugs and anti-allergic drugs.
  3. Low functioning thyroid can affect memory.
  4. Drinking too much alcohol can impair short-term memory.
  5. Stress and anxiety can lead to memory impairment. Both have the potential to impact attention and inhibit the formation of new memory or retrieve the old memories.
  6. Forgetfulness can be a sign of depression or a result of it.
  7. If you are vegetarian, vitamin B12 deficiency can cause memory impairment.
