    memory problems/concentration problems with age?

    I'm having some memory/concentration problems- is it normal as you grow older? my brain doesn't get enough oxygen
    anyway I was 4.0 in physics but I'm worried about this

    Define "older". If you are worried about this, go to your GP. That is what they are there for.

    This is not something MHF can or should answer. As post #2 said, see a medical professional if you have concerns about your well-being.

    As others have said if you are worried see a/your doctor.

    It is not inevitable that memory and/or concentration worsen with age (up to a certain point anyway). You should not normally see any impairment at any age up to 60 at least, probably more like 75 if you are mentally active (how long did Erdős keep working? - you don't need to answer, I know, thank you).

    (that does not mean you will have the same motivation as you get older, boredom and overfamiliarity are serious threats to scientific creativity, or creativity of any kind for that matter)
