Memory loss could just be a natural part of getting older.
But, sometimes it could be caused by an underlying medical condition, including anxiety, depression or stress.
Memory loss is also an early sign of dementia, along with struggling to follow a conversation, getting confused easily, and difficulty concentrating.
This quiz could reveal if you suffer from poor short-term memory.
The quiz features seven questions, each requiring the user to remember certain pictures.
If you get enough questions right, you’ll be told you have a “super memory”.
“One can only envy a memory like yours. You’re extremely attentive and remember everything that comes before your eyes. How do you do it? Well done!”
Take the quiz below and find out your result.
If memory loss is affecting your daily life, or worrying someone you know, you should seek help from a GP, according to the NHS.
Dementia is not a natural part of ageing, and is caused by an ongoing decline in brain functionality.
It can lead to difficulty with thinking speed, judgment, language, understanding, mental sharpness and movement.
About 850,000 people in the UK suffer from dementia.
There’s currently no cure for dementia, but if it’s diagnosed in its early stages, there are ways to slow its progression down.
You can lower your risk of developing dementia by eating a healthy, balanced diet, and keeping blood pressure at a healthy level.
Exercising regularly and maintaining a healthy weight could also reduce the risk of dementia, the NHS said.
