In brief: I suggest

You discuss this with your internist.
I do not believe the ankle fracture is related to your symptoms.

In brief: It is possible

There is a relationship.
..Or it is possible there is no relationship. Either way a 21 year old shold not be having memory issues. I would advise a consult with your internist. If you don't have one - get one.
