In brief: No dementia

Far too young for dementia, but if you were to have migraine headaches, you might experience transient auras of word-finding problems, or some transient confusion (dysphrenia hemicrania transitoria) meds such as topirimate or beta-blockers could also cause memory loss but this would be constant.
Slurred speech could be a med adverse event, but can be caused by alcohol, drugs see your doc soon.
