Thank you for posting your query.

Based on your symptoms, we need to find out the cause for memory problem and headaches. This can be done by doing CT or MRI scan of the brain. Common causes to exclude would be ischemia (lack of blood flow to brain), demyelination, infections, etc. Tumor is less likely, but this can also be diagnosed on the brain scan.

In addition, blood tests for vitamin B12 deficiency and thyroid should also be done.

We also need to do EEG (electroencephalography) to exclude seizures.

I hope it helps. Please get back if you require any additional information.

Wishing you good health,
