im only 19, why is this happening?

My name is Ashley, I am 19 years old. My fiance and I are very concerned about my well-being. Over the past years it has progressed and gotten worse. It gets so frustrating and we don't understand why its happening to me.. I have gone to the doctor many times but its like they refuse to see if anything is truly wrong. Its my memory.. I can't remember where I place things.. If I clean I loose things. I lost my fiance's $400 watch months ago but I can't remember even touching it for the life of me. Sometimes I don't remember conversations from yesterday.. I don't remember when I went to the store whether it be yesterday or a week ago.. I forget to do everyday tasks.. I even forget my sons birthday and name at points in time... I know this may seem just like I am a forgetful person but I promise you I was never like this.. I need someone to take me seriously, I really need help. Please...

Hey Ashley.

You likely have some undiagnosed imbalances and deficiencies.
Also you may be taking some medication(s) which has some side effects
that might explain-at least in part- your symptoms.

Can you supply a few more details about yourself, other diagnosis you have, meds and anything else that might be of interest?

Looking forward to your reply.

Hi Ashley,

I am not a doctor but I am concerned by your symptoms.  What type doctor have you seen?  A general practitioner or other?
