Could my memory loss be due to head injury ?

Hello, When I was 14 y.o. I kind of fell and banged the back of my head really hard on the asphalt, since then i have been having memory problems and i feel as if i no longer have the mental capacity that i had before, can it be related?

Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum
There can be a relation between the head injury and the memory loss, but it would not be gross because memory is related to frontal (front) and parietal (sides) areas of the brain. It is better to consult your neurologist regarding this.
Take care
