Hi, I have been experiencing sever memory loss for example

Hi, I have been experiencing sever memory loss for example when I am in the shower I forget if I have washed my hair... I forget which streets to turn down that I drive on ever day.. I forget what I eat for lunch and I forget names and faces and while conversations quite regularly. I am only 21 years old so not sure what could be wrong, I also get very often headaches.

Hi! I’m a 27 year old female who has been having memory issues over the last two years. The most frustrating part about it is sometimes I will lose something almost as soon as I pick it up. For example, not once, but twice now (both this year - several months apart) I have come home in the morning and then shortIy after went to leave again and couldn’t find my keys and had absolutely no memory of what I may have done with them. I couldn’t even remember taking them out of the ignition. In both cases, I left my car door unlocked (which is extremely odd because I NEVER do that) and neither set of keys were ever seen again. I’ve even gone as far as to remove the entire seats frOm my car to look for them. I also used magnets in hard to reach areas where metal parts didn’t prevent me from doing so. One last brief example is what happened just before I decided to come in here and ask for something me insight and is a perfect example of the kinds of things that happen nearly every day! I picked up the saw and the multimeter to move out of the backyard and into the garage. Just a few steps into the garage, I put the saw on the work bench. Then, I walked the last couple of Steps over to where I needed to use the mutimeter, sat down, and realized it was gone! I remember picking it up. I remember settling the saw down. But, I have absolutely no memory of doing anything else with the multimeter after I picked it up! I still can’t find it! I literally only walked a few steps in total so there’s only so many places it could be. It’s not even like the garage is that messy! When I do find the multimeter, I’m hoping to psychoanalyze the heck out of the reason why I set it where I set it so that maybe it will give me some clues as to where my keys my be lol. Thanks in advance for your time!

My mother-in-law is 83 and said she experienced several episodes of...in her words... a blue shroud passing from one side of her head to the other . She also said she could not remember account numbers or passwords today (understandable at her age, but this is the first time it has occurred).

Hi. My mom has experienced several episodes of memory loss. The process starts with watery eyes, followed by inability to see (vision gets blurry or she sees black and white lines), followed by a short memory loss (she can t recall names of certain people, or certain events). All of this lasts for about 30-60 minutes and then she is back to normal, fully functioning. My mom is 55 years old, eats very healthy (macrobiotic diet where everything is organic), and takes no medication. What could it be?
