Yes, it is of concern. Sleep deprivation can be the cause for your short term memory loss and I suggest that you consult your doctor for an examination and a referral for a sleep test. This will give a clear indication of your sleep patern and treatment can be advised after the results. Sleeping tablets can assist you to normalise your sleep pattern but can only be used for a short period of time.
