The best thing for you to do is have a complete evaluation by a neurologist who is well versed in the diagnosis and treatment of memory issues.The most important thing to do at this point is to rule out the many treatable conditions that can affect memory.Also, during this evaluation, the doctor can see if the deceased sexual function is related to the memory issue or if you would benefit from a consultation with a urologist etc.Does this make sense to you?It's safe for you to press the positive feedback button now if you so desire. And, never fear, even after you press that button I'll still be right here to continue helping you, but, as I do work for tips, I want to make sure you are happy before rating me. Dr. Rick MD FACS
