Doctor

A:   The most common cause of forgetfulness in your age group is stress. I would advise that you modify certain aspects of your lifestyle that try to reduce stress. Eating a healthy balanced diet, yoga, light music and regular exercise will help you. You can also try taking multivitamin to supplement certain vitamins that may be absent in your diet.I wish you well, take care.
