Sleep Medicine Specialist Questions Issues sleeping

Could my daughter's forgetfulness be due to lack of sleep?

Lately, my daughter has been having trouble sleeping. This has been happening for a few weeks, and she's been a lot lazier and quite forgetful. Could these two things be related?

1 Answer

Yes it is entirely possible for poor sleep and daytime tiredness to cause impaired memory and judgment. Trouble sleeping can be a sign of anxiety or stress or depression. It would definitely be appropriate to have her physician evaluate the problem.
