Concentration Difficulties

Difficulty with concentration is a symptom that can arise from both physical and psychological, or emotional, problems. Concentration symptoms may or may not be associated with memory symptoms such as forgetfulness. Physical, medical conditions that affect concentration include pain and/or whiplash. Psychological conditions that may impair concentration include depression, ADHD, certain anxiety disorders, and stress. It might be the early sign of memory impairment. Sleep disorders such as insomnia or sleep apnoea can also impair concentration ability. Any concentration or memory symptoms need prompt professional medical attendance.
