Hello Said, thank you for asking.
Information should be added about whether your mother has previously suffered head trauma, such as a collision or an accident involving the head. Memory loss or what is called amnesia is a condition where a person cannot remember a past event or cannot form a new memory. Amnesia can be divided into:
Anterograde amnesia: a person will have difficulty making new memories. Newly received information or experience cannot be formed into a memory.
Retrograde amnesia: a person will lose memory or information about events and experiences that he has previously experienced.
Amnesia can be caused due to disorders of the brain structure such as dementia (senility), stroke, brain tumor, head injury, epilepsy, infection of the brain, consumption of drugs and alcohol, or psychological trauma. The forms of psychological trauma are very diverse, such as the loss of a loved one or sexual abuse. Amnesia can heal on its own, but the time period required by each person is different. However, there is also amnesia that lasts a long time.
You should bring your mother for a consultation with a psychiatrist. The psychiatrist will try to explore the root of the problem. If the physical examination does not get brain disorders, it is also possible that your mother has amnesia due to the trauma of losing a loved one. In the meantime, invite your mother to do something that is a favorite activity, to keep away from stress triggers. Give attention to your mother so that trauma does not get worse.
Hopefully this information helps a little. Regards.
