Your Memory and “CRS”

One of my first years in medicine a patient came in with a T-shirt that said, “Ask me again, I have CRS”. Of course, I asked about what this CRS was . . . I laughed so hard. I “CRS= Can’t Remember Shit.” He clearly had a sense of humor about something that I would later learn was no laughing matter. The number of Americans that suffer from memory issues is literally astounding! Seriously, if you are thinking that this is you, you are not alone and here’s what we can do.

How do we tell the difference when it comes to health and memory issues? In our clinic, we work through a comprehensive approach to learn more about what things could be happening for you. We see quite a few patients in their 40’s and 50’s that are concerned about memory issues based on their family history. If you are one of those patients or are experiencing some memory changes, set your reminders to look for these newsletters. We are going to spend the month going over the things you should be on the lookout for! There are a number of things that could be causing you to have memory issues and we want to help!

Here are the Top 5 Reasons:

  1. Hormonal problems? Hormones are well known for affecting your memory. When there are imbalances they can throw all sorts of systems out of whack and we want to be on the look for this. Are you peri-menopausal? Maybe in the thick of Menopause? It’s possible this is causing your memory issues. Men, listen up… you are not ruled out in this either!
  2. Medications reactions and interactions can cause memory issues, brain fog and more.
  3. Sleep Problems. Are you getting enough sleep? Well, that could be an issue entirely right there. Are you suffering from insomnia? Go back to number one here because that could also be playing a part.
  4. Chronic Stress. Do you have too many things going on at once? Have you moved, had a death in the family, gotten married recently? Many life experiences that happen at the same time can cause an overload of stress on your systems and we can work on this together.
  5. Neurodegenerative diseases – Dementia and ALZ. These are far more in-depth and genetics can play a part and we would further testing this to see if this is an issue for you. We definitely need to rule out the above as part of this process too.

Are you concerned that your memory is giving you a rough time? Finding out early is a great way to see if you are at risk for anything serious. Take this memory quiz and see how you rate:
