I'm still in my 20's and have been experiencing very mild but somewhat troubling memory impairment in the last couple of months. I started noticing it only recently after my girlfriend brought it up with some concern. Its mostly things like forgetting what I was going to say or came to a place to do, as well as remembering what someone told me or who did what. Maybe this is a normal progression of the stress of living and working as an adult with anxiety, but I do wonder if the state that kava puts me in isn't just causing me to gloss over things that people say to me a little more and causing a lack of recall later on when I am not drinking kava. I drink small amounts of kava throughout the day and a medium sized amount at night. It could be a symptom of a hundred different things though. Anyone else get this? Edit: I actually feel like I perform better on writing and things that require focus when I am using a little kava because it quiets the mind so I don't know what to make of it. maybe I'm using too much before bed, since the memory backup program of the brain runs during sleep.
