In brief: Memory

I would visit your primary care doc to address this issue.
Many different things can cause memory problems - medications, dementia, inattention disorders (like add), street drugs, etc. Since the symptoms are so vague, hopefully your doctor can pinpoint the cause of the memory problems.
