There are very few conditions known to man for which Hepatitis C and/or it's treatment has not been blamed.
Memory loss and confusion are verifiable complications of advanced cirrhosis.
Does chronic Hep C cause quantifiable memory impairment in a significant proportion of patients compared to a healthy control group of the same age-probably not.
HRQOL scores are ,however,significantly lower among Hep C groups than among controls.

what was the question?.... oh yeah.

I will say that my memory, esp. short term is very bad, but I think it is an age thing.

My wife has the same memory problems, probably a little worse and she does not have hcv.. but she is 44.  It happens.

is your wife blonde?  Just kidding LOL.  I gotta agree with you, my short term memory stinks.  I often find myself missing a word in a sentance that I just can't remember, I can describe what I am thinking but just can't remember the word for it.  If that makes any sense?  I am 47 and honestly don't think it is an age thing.

natural brunette, but now a blonde!  me like!

I think it is...
reason??  I know too many people that same age that have the exact same problem and they do not have hcv.  Its called getting old.  yuck.

I don't even try to remember things anymore.  Makes life a lot easier.  Then you can play the old geezer card if anyone calls you on it.

I do believe it may be a little worse if you have hcv on top of it... course if your liver is going down, and you are pumping amonia (ammonia) into your system then you get a lot more than "forgetful"
