Forgetting things
Hello doctor, I have a problem of forgetting things very easily. I can't remember things for long term. The things which I have studied just now and then revised it after 2days and then after a week, even then I forget them. It's not just that I learn things simply but I have to put more effort than usual, I use several study tricks to remember things i.e.I relate the things to some events, or I use pnemonics, visualization etc eventhough I could remember only 10-15%. I can't concentrate for more than 10mins but earlier it was around 25-30 mins. And it's not only for study but also for day to day activities. I am facing it from last 7 months. I also experience slowing down of my mind, it takes more time than usual to complete a certain activity which I could do much easily and quickly before this problem. This things have made me feel sad always. I don't enjoy doing anything which I enjoyed earlier. Please suggest me that which doctor should I consult( psychiatrist or neurologist).
