The most common causes of forgetfulness and memory issues are: 1. Alcohol and smoking 2. Drugs/Medications including simply the cold medicines. 3. Anxiety and Depression. 4. Frontal lobe defects 5. Thyroid issues. 6. Neurological issues like Early Parkinson's, Alzheimer's Disease. You should not consume any alcohol in case you are taking. Just reverse back your history and ask your parents if ever in your life, you have received any injections/ tablets for long term for vomitings. If yes, you might have got Drug (Metoclopramide) induced Parkinson's disease. You should also check in case you are taking any medicine for any purpose including multivitamins.
