There are a number of causes that can cause short term memory loss
Like vitamin B deficiency, smoking, alcohol abuse, stress, thyroid problem
I recommend Taking vitamin B supplements and doing a Thyroid profile
Good Luck

this as an attention deficit disorder and you need a psychiatrist consultation for this as early as possible.

In my opinion this could be a transient global amnesia if adolescence, did you recently had emotional stress? Before those couple of months?
You should see a neuro-psychiatrist for evaluation if your case and proper management ..

Thanks for the query..

At such an early age such symptoms are generally not considered under amnesia..

It is commonly due to severe stress, excessive work load, Nutritional deficiency, some worries or tensions etc..

But still a consultation with a Psychiatrist should be done to rule out the exact cause and treatment can be done accordingly….

As of now make a note of important things, do meditation and yoga, try to stay happy and stress free and keep yourself engaged..

Everything will be fine..

Hope this helps..
