Suspicion high: That your medications are affecting your memory, as many meds have anticholinergic side effects causing cognitive issues. Alternatively, if this is not the case, could consider thyroid issues, vitamin deficiency, even chronic low level carbon monoxide exposure, espec if you are having peculiar headaches, and red fingertips.
