Menopause symptoms: Brain fog or Alzheimer’s symptoms? Doctor clears up the confusion

On the other hand, menopausal memory loss or “brain fog” is due to a “combination of factors” directly related to a drop in oestrogen, which can be treated with HRT – hormonal replacement therapy, explained Doctor Lee.

Hot flushes, for example – a typical menopause symptom – affects the rate of blood flow to the temporal lobe changes, which is linked to less logical thinking, suggested Doctor Lee.

Sleeping problems due to the menopause can also affect the processing of memories.

That’s because frequent night-time awakenings reduce the amount of deep sleep, a period during sleep when memories are processed, and depression is also linked to poor mental functioning.
