In brief: Nonspecific symptoms

A very large number of general medical conditions, as well as many neurological and psychiatric illnesses, may cause impairment of attention and concentration with memory problems.
The best place to start would be a general checkup on your body's systems by a primary care provider, who could send you to other specialists if needed based on the initial work up.
