Psychiatrist 's  Response
First we have to find the reason for same

The reasons can be : you are under some form of stress, knowingly / without your awareness, you may be having specific learning difficulty, where particularly Mathematics problems are sometimes prominent, depression or anxiety

You need to consult a psychiatrist / clinical psychologist for complete assessment and solutions are there for this. No need to worry

Psychiatrist Dr. Suyog Jaiswal's  Response
Since you have completed your graduation its less likely your IQ is below normal range otherwise you would not have come this far in education.
Next about mathematics problem its a chance you are suffering from Dyscalculia (specific learning disability) but if you dont have to worry about it as well if you dont deal with mathematics which cant be done with help of simple calculators.
Thirdly, forgetfulness and lack of concentration if present since childhood along with loosing things, clumsiness, hyperactivity and impulsiveness; then Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder can be thought of. However if your symptoms are of recent onset then we think of in terms of stress be the reason behind it.
If you have any anxiety, lack of confidence, decreased sleep/appetite, restlessness so see a psychiatrist for it.
Hope it helped your query.
