I am a 53 yr old female and have been experiencing short term memory loss for the past 2-3 years, I recently had a c- spine xray and the finding were this: There is scoliosis with striaghtening of the cervical lordosis . There is mild retrolisthesis at C5-6 where there is decrease in the height of the interspace with oseophytes leading to foraminal stenosis bilaterally. There is no fracture. My question is this....could this problem with my neck be attributed to my memory loss?

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Your memory loss can not be attributed to the problem of your neck.
You have to see a neurologist - vascular insufficiency, early Alzheimer, simple ageing changes and so on need to be investigated

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
